Persimmon ‘Fuyu’ 16″ Pot (Espaliered)

$449.99

Diospyros kaki ‘Fuyu’ Japanese persimmon

The Fuyu persimmon is a non-astringent variety that benefits from a trifecta of qualities; it lacks a core, seeds, and tannins. The flavor of the Vanilla Kaki persimmon is rich and sweet, with tasting notes of pear, apricot, and a hint of bourbon vanilla. It has very little of the astringent tartness that marks other persimmon varieties.

Self-fertile, ‘Fuyu’ does not require cross-pollination with another species, but many horticulturists believe fruit is tastier and more abundant when cross-pollination occurs.

Product Description

Diospyros kaki ‘Fuyu’ Japanese persimmon

This Japanese Persimmon tree is medium-sized and has an upright, spreading habit. It is a heavy bearing variety, and produces large, flat, deep orange, tomato-shaped fruits without the need for cross pollination. The fruit is a non-astringent variety, so can be eaten while still firm. In Autumn, the glossy green foliage provides a beautiful display turning an array of reds and oranges. As the leaves drop, the vibrant fruit remains hanging on the bare branches becoming sweeter as they ripen.
