Top Selling Persimmon Variety with Delicious Fruit Easy to grow and pleasing to the eye, the Fuyu Persimmon tree (Diospyros kaki) offers sweet and delicious fruit that is never bitter. A Fuyu Asian persimmon tastes a bit like a pumpkin crossed with an apple with a ripe texture ranging from a crisp peach to sweet jelly. Fun fact: The Fuyu persimmon has been called divine fruit from its botanical name Diospyros. This literally means wheat of Zeus. It is known as a fruit of the gods and a good choice for any home garden. The Fuyus fruit is medium to large in size with a bright orange color and will keep well for a number of weeks. Fuyu fruit is red orange skinned, sweet, and a delight to your tastebuds when fully ripened. Persimmon trees will grow upright with many lateral branches. Fuyu persimmon leaves are bright green in color but will change to shades of yellows, oranges, and reds during fall while the fruit is still hanging on the tree. This fruit tree has a beautiful fall color when most other plants are going into dormancy. Shop our Fuyu Persimmons trees for sale today. When Is A Fuyu Persimmon Ripe The fruit begins to ripen in September and completes ripening in October when it is ready to pick. It can remain on the tree until fully ripe. The fully ripe form is a good source of vitamins and minerals including beta carotene and dietary fiber. When to Pick Fuyu Persimmons In most locations, persimmons will ripen just before Thanksgiving. You can tell when a Fuyu persimmon is ripe by the color of the fruit and that it is slightly soft. The nearly ripened fruit is amber colored and fully ripe will be bright orange. Fuyu persimmons can ripen off the tree. It may be a good idea to pick unripe persimmons and leave them at room temperature. When you are ready to eat the fruit, you can place it in a brown paper bag and let ethylene gas ripen them (similar to bananas and avocados). The reason to do this is to prevent them from rotting on the tree or from birds or other wildlife devouring their delicious flesh. Fuyu Persimmon Growing Zone This fruit tree grows best in agriculture plant hardiness USDA hardiness zones 7 through 11. The tree has slight cold hardiness but cannot handle extremely cold temperatures during the growing season. Mild winters are ok with the Fuyu tree as they are great trees for the southern United States. Fuyu Persimmon Tree Size A mature Fuyu persimmon tree can grow anywhere between 15 and 20 feet tall and rarely exceeds 18 to 20 feet wide. Regular pruning can maintain your Fuyu persimmon tree size to keep it manageable. Rather than letting your fruit tree grow to the mature height and width, prune in late winter to heights around 8 feet so the fruit can be picked and enjoyed. The Fuyu bearing age typically takes between 2 to 3 years to begin to develop deep orange fruit that is acorn shaped. Since our trees are already 1 to 2 years old they should bear fruit in 1 to 2 years once planted in the ground. How To Prune Fuyu Persimmon Tree The best time to prune a fuyu persimmon tree is early spring or late winter when the tree is dormant. It is also important to prune the persimmon tree in its early stages of growing to establish its main branches and make space for growing fruit. Cut back any dead, dying, or diseased branches to the trunk of the tree. This will help the branches from rubbing against each other. It's also a good idea to prune the tree annually to ensure the fuyu persimmon tree is getting enough sunlight and airflow. Are Fuyu Persimmons Self Pollinating Fuyu is self-pollinating meaning they do not need another tree for cross pollination. However, having another persimmon tree nearby will increase the fruit load meaning more delicious ripe persimmon fruit for you. If your fuyu persimmon tree is younger than 3 years you may want to wait before cross pollinating it. Asian Fuyu Persimmon Tree Care The Asian Persimmon tree prefers full sun exposure and loamy, well-drained soil. It can handle planting areas in partial shade during the afternoon summer heat. The tree has a very long tap root and will require some space to grow its large root system. This trees small form and vigorous growth make the Fuyu Asian Persimmon a great choice for home landscapes. Mature trees dont produce fruit in sandy soil. Root growth will take time and Fuyu persimmon trees fertilizer should be applied to help promote new growth. Fertilize once or twice a year with a slow release fertilizer to grow persimmons. These persimmon fruit trees require 36 to 48 inches of water annually, especially as young trees get established root systems. Once the Japanese persimmon tree establishes in the landscape, it is drought tolerant. Giant Fuyu trees are pest and disease resistant and a great choice for your fruit tree collection. These are not bare root trees. They ship rooted in a container in the soil for the health of the tree. When to Plant Fuyu Persimmon Trees The best time of year to plant persimmon trees is in
