The Hachiya Japanese Persimmon Tree carries an abundant crop of very large, round, deep orange-red fruits in late October and into November. This variety is considered to be the best there is for baking, and also for eating fresh. The fruit should be allowed to ripen fully, when the flesh is very, very soft, before eating. The tree itself is small and spreading, just 12 feet tall and wide. This makes it ideal for smaller gardens and spaces, since some types of Japanese persimmon can be 30 feet tall in time. The tree is handsome, with large, glossy leaves up to 8 inches long, which turn gorgeous fall shades of yellow, orange and red. The fruit remains on the tree after the leaves are gone, making a spectacular winter display.

  • Very large deep orange-red fruit
  • Top quality for eating and especially for baking
  • Attractive small, spreading tree
  • Fruits alone, without needing a pollinator
  • Among the easiest of fruit trees to grow successfully

Grow your Hachiya Persimmon Tree in full sun, in rich, well-drained garden soil. It has some drought resistance when established, and it is free of pests and diseases. You don’t need a second tree of a different variety for pollination either. It doesn’t even need pruning, so this is one of the easiest fruit trees to grow at home. It is hardy from zone 7 to zone 10, and in colder zones it can be grown in a sunny greenhouse, atrium or large sun-porch.
