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.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • I've been wanting a Nikita's Gift Persimmon Tree since 2016. Purchased twice from another supplier only to have both trees fail. With such a small tree (5-1/2 inch band pot) is it grafted? What sort of care should I give it? I've purchased own root roses this small, but never a fruit tree.

    They are grafted on D. Lotus stock and can be cared for in pots if you are concerned about in-ground growing until they are larger.

  • Will Nikita's Gift pollinate other varieties such as CoffeeCake?

    In theroy yes, but it is full self fertile.
