Diospyrus kaki 'Jiro'

A classic, non-astringent Asian persimmon that can be enjoyed when firm or fully soft. When firm, the taste is rather like a melon; when fully soft, the flesh is pudding-soft and richly sweet. The Fuyu-style fruit is round, squat and flat with a glossy, orange skin and sweet, mild flesh.

The trees have a graceful, layered form and glossy, medium-green leaves during the growing season. In Autumn, the leaves turn vivid shades of orange, amber and sienna, and after leaf fall the stunning orange fruits hang like little jack o'lanterns on the branches. A real show-stopper! Be sure to provide regular August water for optimum fruit set and development. Low chill: 200 hours. Early bearing patterns may be erratic.
