Persimmon Trees

Persimmon Trees

There are two types of persimmon fruit trees available, depending on variety and how they are pollinated. Some persimmons need to be completely ripe and soft in order to be edible, and the others can be eaten while the flesh is still crisp (like an apple). The first kind of persimmon tree fruit are called “astringent varieties” like the Hachiya. The other kind are labeled as “non-astringent” and include perimmon tree varieties like Fuya and Jiro. Sometimes, non-astringent types of fruit are just called “sweet persimmons”.

Persimmon trees will start to produce fruit after approx 3 years, and you’ll get a full harvest from your fruit trees at about 6 years of age. At that point, you will have approx. 40 to 50 pounds of persimmon fruit each year on your persimmon trees. Most persimmon tree varieties are red or dark orange when ripe.

As long as they have been properly ripened, you can eat persimmons raw and fresh, or use them in cooking. They are high in vitamin C and iron.

Growing Tips: Persimmon trees like full sun in well-drained soil. Set persimmon trees 25-30' apart. Fruit is the size of large peaches. Persimmon trees grow to 25-30 ft. Suggest cross-pollination to increase quality of fruit and reduce fruit drop. Zones 6-10.
