About This Product

The Saijo is an astringent, self-pollinating persimmon tree that produces a yellowish-orange, sweet fruit. The fruit has very few seeds which makes it ideal for eating fresh. The persimmons ripen in mid-fall and are oblong fruit with a yellow flesh. The Saijo tree also produces white-pink flowers in the late spring or early summer before it fruits, and it boasts of fall foliage. Another attractive quality of the persimmon tree is its high pest resistance. The Saijo has a moderate growth-rate and reaches around 15 ft. to 25 ft. high with a width between 10 ft. to 12 ft. Plant in full sun or partial shade with moist, well-drained soil. We graft the Saijo persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock.

Answer This Question

A:  Did they ripen on the tree? Astringent persimmons will not be astringent when fully ripe whether after being harvested or on the tree.

    A:  It us Saijo Persimmon Tree from Home Depot. It might surprise you to know that I enjoy tons of flowers and trees without the idea of their Latin name or even Common name. I know even people to whom I like and yes even trust without knowing their names, like police persons, mail persons. Trust issues, vkelman?

      A:  It's grafted onto American persimmon stock. Says so right in the description.

        I don’t know if anything will grow out of this stick, or when it will grow. The root system was very very small. Literally, a 3 foot stick with 2 shallow roots. It’s in the ground. Nothing is coming out yet, other trees are already blooming or shooting small leaves.
