  • 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 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
