The Suruga Japanese Persimmon Tree is a small tree with attractive dark-green leaves that turn lovely shades of gold, orange, red and purple in fall. The bright-orange fruit ripens after the leaves have fallen, looking beautiful on the bare branches, and tasting delicious. This is the sweetest of all the non-astringent varieties, that can be eaten straight from the tree, without needing long indoor ripening. It is self-pollinating and this variety is a good choice for container-growing anywhere in the country.

  • Medium-sized fruit with dark orange skin and flesh
  • Non-astringent variety that can be eaten right from the tree
  • Very large late harvest in October and November
  • Attractive garden tree with beautiful full colors of red and purple
  • Ideal choice for container growing everywhere.

Plant your Suruga Japanese Persimmon Tree in full sun – it will grow best and ripen a big crop. The soil should be well-drained, but otherwise it will grow easily in most soils, except for very alkaline ones. Once established it is drought tolerant, and a very easy tree to grow and succeed with. It is normally free of pests or diseases and needs no fancy care to grow well and carry a big crop.
