The Tamopan Japanese Persimmon is an attractive deciduous shade tree, with leathery green leaves that turn vibrant reds, oranges and golds in fall. When the leaves fall they reveal large, grapefruit-sized orange fruits, with a unique shape like a beefsteak tomato wearing a cap. These hang on the tree as they ripen, through October and November. They can also be brought inside and kept until fully-ripe, when they become sweet, aromatic and delicious. Eat them fresh, or use them in muffins, breads and preserves.

  • Very large orange fruits in October and November
  • Beautiful tree with leathery leaves
  • Amazing fall colors of red, orange and gold
  • Fruit hangs on the tree after leaves fall, and ripens
  • Easy to grow and a very ornamental tree

Hardy from zone 7, the Tamopan Japanese Persimmon is easy to grow in any well-drained soil. Enrich the ground with organic material, and water deeply during dry spells. Free of pests and diseases, this tree needs no fancy pruning, and it is very easy to grow successfully. This variety is self-fertile, so it produces a big crop without needing a second tree nearby. Long branches can be trimmed to keep your tree more compact.
