Fire Crystal Persimmon: Ignite Your Orchard with Ruby Riches

About the Fruit

The Fire Crystal Persimmon is a treasure among fruit connoisseurs, radiating a ruby glow that beckons a taste of its luxurious sweetness. Known for its soft texture and honeyed flavor, this persimmon variety is astringent, meaning it can be enjoyed after softening  into a succulent, pudding-like treat. Perfect for fresh snacking, bold salad additions, or divine desserts, the Fire Crystal Persimmon is a versatile gem for any kitchen.

What to Know About the Tree

The Fire Crystal Persimmon tree is a deciduous delight, showcasing a seasonal spectacle of vibrant foliage before winter’s rest. Growing to a manageable height of 12-15 feet, it’s an excellent fit for varying garden sizes, including urban spaces. Its striking leaves transition from deep green to autumnal shades of orange and red, and in spring, delicate white flowers add a splash of elegance. This tree is not only a bearer of delectable fruits but also an ornamental masterpiece for any landscape.

Harvest Season

As the fall air crisps, the Fire Crystal Persimmon announces its harvest season. The tree’s branches become heavy with the weight of glossy, flame-colored fruits, providing a striking harvest from October to November. These persimmons offer a delightful contrast to the cooling weather, bringing warmth and vibrancy to your garden when many other fruits have long disappeared.

Fruitscaping™ with Persimmon Trees

Embark on a unique Fruitscaping™ journey with our exquisite selection of Persimmon Trees. We offer both astringent and non-astringent varieties to cater to diverse taste preferences. While astringent persimmons are known for their high tannin content, making them best enjoyed when fully ripe, non-astringent persimmons can be savored crisp, like an apple, without the mouth-puckering sensation.

Persimmon trees are nature’s multi-taskers, adding visual allure, shade, and succulent fruits to your organic garden. They are remarkably resistant to diseases and pests, making them a low-maintenance yet high-reward addition to your Fruitscaping™ endeavors.

Persimmons thrive in well-drained, sandy or loamy soil and prefer slightly acidic conditions. They flourish under full sun exposure, needing at least six hours of sunlight daily to yield a rich crop.

In the Fruitscaping™ design, persimmon trees offer striking ornamental value. Their lush foliage in summer and vibrant, orange-yellow fall colors create a spectacular display. Moreover, the bright orange fruits hanging on the tree after leaf drop offer a unique, decorative touch throughout the winter.

Persimmon trees also prove a fantastic choice for different gardening styles. Whether you choose to shape them into a magnificent espalier or let them grow naturally, they contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal of your garden.

Immerse yourself in the rewarding journey of Fruitscaping™ with our Persimmon Trees. From planting and caring to harvesting and enjoying the sweet, honey-like flavor of your homegrown persimmons, each step is filled with delightful experiences. With our astringent and non-astringent varieties, discover the pleasure of growing and savoring your own persimmons.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
