American Persimmon Plant
A Favorite for Preserves
Doesn't deserve its puckery reputation! Fruit starts out with a tangy, apricot-like flavor, but develops a rich sweetness after first frost. 35 to 60 ft. tree is lovely enough to be used as an ornamental, with golden fall foliage and attractive deep orange fruit that will hang 'til mid-winter, lending color to the winter landscape. Plant two for pollination. Zones 5-9.
