Diospyrus kaki 'Chocolate'

Choice of connoisseurs! Medium-size, conical fruit with vivid orange/red skin develops sweet, spicy/nutty, firm but juicy brownish flesh when pollinized by another variety of Asian persimmon. May develop seeds depending on pollination conditions. Fruit can be ripened off the tree. Considered pollination-variant astringent, as it can set fruit solo - but will be astringent and fruit flavor will be less complex. Produces many male flowers, which makes it valuable as a pollinizer.

Low chill, needing only 100 hours at 45F to successfully set fruit. Quite tolerant of heat and humidity - great for Southern growers! The best pollinizer for the Coffee Cake variety, and one of the latest to ripen.

USDA Zone: 8-11

Grow Height: 15'

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: October/November

Pollination: Somewhat Self-Fertile; Fruit Quality Improves with Pollination
