Fuyu Persimmon Asian (Diospyros Kaki) Grafted onto virginiana rootstock 24"-36"
- The Fuyu persimmon is a non-astringent variety that benefits from a trifecta of qualities; it lacks a core, seeds, and tannins. These asian persimmons have a squat and rounded shape and are capped with an indented leaf. Fuyu persimmons boast an orange pumpkin color on both its skin and flesh. When ripe they possess layers of flavor, reminiscent of pear, dates and brown sugar with nuances of cinnamon. Their texture varies from crisp and succulent when young, to a tender and gelatinous texture as they mature. Fruits are ready for harvest when skins are deep orange, and unlike most other persimmon types, have no astringency and are ready to eat when still firm. Self fertile, grow in zone 8 and higher with some grown in zone 7
