PERSIMMONS - ASIAN

The plant nursery has closed for retirement.

We thank you for your pratronage through the last 26 years.  Bill Ford is available for consultation and presentations. Please feel free to use the following pages for reference. Happy gardening!

 

Hachiya

Hachiya is a popular astringent variety because of the large deep red-orange fruit. It is sweet, flavorful, when soft-ripe. The ripened flesh is tender, juicy and sweet - great for cooking, drying and eating fresh. The tree grows vigorously.

 Ripens in November. Zones 8-11


Giant Fuyu - Gosho

One of the deepest red colors of any persimmon when fully ripe, Gosho’s large fruit are roundish with flattened ends. Flesh is non-astringent, supple, juicy and even sweeter than regular Fuyu. The tree somewhat dwarf, disease resistant, and bears regularly. Ripens in late October. Zones 8-11


Fuyu

The most popular persimmon in Japan, Fuyu bears fruit that are large, reddish-orange with a flat shape. Being non-astringent, the sweet flavor and smooth texture can be enjoyed even before it is fully ripe. It will bear at a young age, and is a heavy producer so fruit thinning is usually necessary to ensure large fruit.

Ripens in November. Zones 8-11


Planting Information

 

A beautiful tree in its own right, Asian persimmons bear a luscious sweet fruit. Being more tropical in nature, and injured or killed below 10°F, they can be successfully grown in Zones 8-11 and with protection in lower Zone 7.  Because of this tenderness,

we can not guarantee these trees above Zone 8.

 

Plant in full sun for best blooming and ripening. A wide variety of soil types are tolerated, preferring a loam soil. Not for the impatient, these trees do not leaf out until summer temperatures reach and maintain in the 90°'s. The fruit continue to ripen and become sweeter after picking. Bears in 4-7 years.
