Fuyu Jiro Persimmon

The #1 fresh-eating persimmon in America!

  • One of the best for fresh eating
  • Red-orange, sweet fruits
  • Fruits ripen in late fall
  • Great yields
  • Self-pollinating
A completely different persimmon experience, this non-astringent variety offers a mellow, sweet flavor without the pudding like texture. Some have likened the sweetness of the crisp fruits to a cantaloupe. Extremely productive tree grows to a mature height of 20-30 feet and bears fruit at a young age. Deciduous green foliage turns brilliant orange-red in fall. Plant in full sun. Self-pollinating. Zones 7-10.
