Description

The Fuyu Persimmon Tree is the most popular persimmon tree world-wide. Fuyu Persimmon Trees are self-pollinating, heavy fruit producing, and low maintenance.

Fuyu Persimmons are medium to large and somewhere between a tomato and a donut in shape. The mild, but sweet fruit are ready to eat crisp off the tree. They do not have to get mushy and over-ripe to be sweet and flavorful.

Key Features

  • Self Fertile. A Fuyu Persimmon Tree can pollinate itself. You only need 1 tree to enjoy the fruit of this Persimmon.
  • Easy to grow. This fruit tree is pest and disease resistant, drought tolerant, and adaptable to most soils.
  • Grow your own healthy food. You can harvest your very own persimmon fruit in the first year. Enjoy the health benefits of eating Fuyu Persimmons. The fruit contains lots of fiber and vitamins A and C and trace amounts of vitamins E, K, and B-6.
  • Versatile in recipes. Fuyu Persimmons are excellent for fresh-eating plain or paired with some brie cheese or prosciutto. Try it on ice cream or salads. Persimmons work well in sweet or savory dishes and can be used to make preserves and sauces. You can freeze, dry, or can persimmons to extend their life. The options are endless.

Pro Tip: Harvest the fruits when the skin is deep orange for the best flavor. Fuyu Persimmons generally ripen from mid-September to November. Unlike Astringent Persimmons, Fuyu can be eaten before the are fully ripe.

How to Care

Plant Fuyu Persimmon Trees in full sun in USDA growing zones 7 to 10. They are adaptable to most soil types.

Water deeply when planting and a couple times weekly for the first 2 to 3 months. Once established, Persimmon Trees are drought tolerant. But watering deeply every couple weeks from spring through harvest especially when conditions are dry will help your tree grow and fruit better.

Feed your Fuyu Persimmon Tree once yearly in spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer.

Prune your Persimmon Tree in late winter or early spring using open vase or open center pruning. This allows proper sunlight penetration and air circulation. Prune back ⅓ of all branches to a bud that is facing the direction you want the tree to grow. Remove all crossed and crowded branches within the center of the tree crown. Remove any suckers or vigorous upright shoots, as well as sick, broken, or dead branches when you notice them.

Harvest fruit when it has turned from yellow to orange, generally in mid September, October, or November. Persimmon fruit can bruise when picked so trimming fruit off right where it is attached to the tree is ideal.

Healthy tree and great customer care

The original tree got broken during transit, although it was very well packaged. But it's not their fault. Perhaps FedEx didn't handle it carefully, specially given that I live in the west coast (farthest from the nursery). When I told them, they responded quickly that they will send another tree for free. The replacement tree is safe and sound. It's about 6 ft tall, looks healthy with lots of foliage and some branches. Five star for the customer care and healthy tree. Eagerly waiting for fruit next year.
