    Hyakumo persimmon

    Hyakumo persimmon is a bearer of very large, roundish fruit, yellow skin, sometimes patched with dark brown areas, extra fine quality, rich and luscious. The tree is a medium  to good bearer and fruit should be allowed to hang till frosts come, then they are best stored till they go soft, when they will have no astringency left and are delicious to eat, Hyakumo persimmon will tend to set only a modest crop of fruits on its own with out pollination from another variety, so it is best to plant another persimmon close by to pollinate - Dai Dai Maru is often recommended as a very good pollinator

  • Jiro dwarf persimmon

    Jiro dwarf persimmon is a new offering for us this year. It has been grown in the nursery as a potted tree, and we send it with the potting soil still partially  surrounding the roots....in a sort of semi bare rooted state. The Jiro dwarf persimmon is a fully dwarfed persimmon at maturity, reaching to around 2 metres, with fine flavour, and good cropping potential. Jiro dwarf persimmon is a non astringent variety, which can be eaten when still crisp and crunchy, or left to mature to a soft texture and eaten late. Dwarf persimmons will grow well in large pots or smallish garden beds, and are very easily kept pruned to a desired shape and size. Jiro dwarf persimmon is a good option for plantings that have to be made close to houses, as neither roots nor branches will become too invasive
