Prohibited to CA. A hardy as the American persimmon and as large as the Asian, Nikita’s ™ large crops of 2-1/2inch, 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 orange color. From Nikita Botanic Garden in Yalta. It is self-fertile. On D. virginiana rootstock. We offer well rooted 3-4 foot trees.
