A Persimmon tree is a great choice for a fruit tree in your garden that is both unusual and easy to grow. It will grow well in all the warmer parts of the country and is trouble-free and pest-free too. The large, orange fruits are attractive hanging on the bare branches of the tree, and they are also wonderful to eat fresh or in preserves. The orange flesh of the persimmon is sweet, soft and tastes like pears and apricots. The fruit is harvested when it changes color, but should then be stored to become completely soft before eating. The tree grows to between 20 and 30 feet tall, or it can be trained on a wall or trellis and kept much smaller. It has attractive glossy leaves that turn wonderful shades or red and orange in fall.

  • Delicious and unusual fruit tastes of pears and apricots
  • Easily grown in sun or partial shade
  • Hardy outdoors to 0 degrees
  • Trouble-free, no pests and needs no special care
  • Beautiful foliage with dramatic red and orange fall colors

Plant the Persimmon Tree in a sunny or partially-shaded spot, in any kind of soil. Avoid low-lying and wet areas. It needs no special pruning or care and will be producing its first crop in no more than three years from planting – so you will soon be enjoying your very own delicious persimmons picked right from your own tree.
