The Fuyu Persimmon is a popular variety, accounting for roughly eighty percent of all commercially grown persimmons worldwide. Mature Fuyu Persimmons are considered medium to large, and are about the size of a large apple. Fuyu Persimmons have gained a dedicated following among fruit lovers because they are sweet and ready to eat right off the tree. There is no need to store each fruit and wait for the astringency to fade. In addition to the sweet taste and quick ripening, Fuyu Persimmons can be stored for months once picked.
Fuyu Persimmon Trees are more cold-hardy than many fruit trees, and can thrive in USDA Zones 7 to 11. If garden space is limited, Fuyu Persimmons Trees can also be grown in a suitable container on a patio or deck. Our Fuyu Persimmon Trees are cultivated by grafting the established branches of a proven specimen to vigorous rootstocks to give you a reliable, fast growing producer that can grow fruit in the first year.
