Product Details

Known commonly as the Japanese Persimmon, this small to medium sized tree was introduced from China in 1796 for its edible tomato shaped well to orange to yellow fruits.

Diospyros kaki can be nipped back by frost so planting should be restricted to southern Britain and in non-exposed south facing gardens.

It thrives in most free draining soils and forms a rounded crown.

Its large vibrant leaves turn orange and yellow in the autumn.

Mature height : 3-7
