Nikita's Gift Persimmon Tree
Diospyrus kaki x virginiana 'Nikita's Gift'
As hardy as the American persimmon and as large as the Asian, Nikita’s large crops of 2-1/2 inch, flattish, red-orange fruit are certainly gifts. When fully ripe and soft, this second-generation hybrid persimmon is sweet and flavorful. Fall foliage is a gorgeous, vivid orange color. Originally known as Nikitskaya Bordovaya.
From Nikita Botanic Garden in Yalta, Ukraine. It is self-fertile. On D. virginiana rootstock.
