About This Product

The Fuyu variety is an excellent choice of Persimmons for the backyard gardener due to its honeyed sweet taste with notes of cinnamon and brown sugar, as well being a non-astringent fruit that lacks a true core and the bitterness associated with other Persimmon cultivars. For these reasons, the entire fruit can be consumed much like you would eat an apple, except you don't have to stop and toss out the core - it is fully edible. Fuyu persimmons are a medium-sized variety averaging 2 in. to 3 in. Dia and typically have a squat, rounded appearance much like an orange heirloom tomato, although sometimes developing four distinct sides. Skin is thin, glossy and smooth, showcasing light orange to dark orange-red hues. Underneath the surface, pale orange flesh is dense, smooth, succulent and crisp. Fuyu persimmons have been cultivated all over Asia for thousands of years and are considered the national fruit of Japan. The name Diospyros translates to "divine fruit" in Greek, signifying the great affection cultures have had for this fruit over the centuries. Lives most comfortably in climates that don't dip below 0° F and reaches 15 ft. in height and width.

    Q:What is the root stalk? Or was it grown from Seed? I wonder if the new growth from the root will bear fruit. The top of my tree was frozen dead last winter.

      I received an apple tree instead of the persimmon tree. Double check the label on the tree before you plant it. I assumed it was persimmon. I Was disappointed, but Home Depot’s online customer service was very good. I was given a refund and credit for the error.

      Good size, sprouted leaves quickly even in winter.
      Arrived with no leaves (as expected). Packaging was thoroughly protective. Came with instructions on how to plant for best results. Arrived a day sooner than Home Depot said it would. Got it planted in early January and it had leaves by mid-February. Attached is a photo from early March. The leaves are greener in person than in the photo. Price is a bit high here, but saw it for sale on the grower's website at a lower price. Maybe Home Depot will lower their price - that's my only complaint.

        This tree is a present for my wife...
        My wife loves persimmons, and this particular type of persimmon is her favorite. These are a particularly expensive fruit, and now she won't have to worry about find these in stores, nor being over charged for this fruit. The tree came in a very well packaged and protected box, and is very easy to get planted. I am so happy that this was sold through Home Depot, where I can trust my purchases being backed locally. I have any will definitely recommend this to anyone! :-)

          It’s a twig
          Should’ve taken the reviews seriously. It really is a twig for $100.

            Arrived on time with healthy roots.
            Have heavy clay soil. Knowing the root will have a hard time penetrating the clay soil, I dug a deep 24 inch diameter hole. Filled it with good mixture of loam soil and compost. Mix in a little of the native clay soil. Planted over six weeks ago and now four branches and a small one sprouted. Tree is in very good condition.
