Sheng Persimmon Tree: Autumn Bliss in Every Bite

About the Fruit

The Sheng Persimmon is a delectable treasure that encapsulates the essence of fall. Renowned for its sweet, honey-like flavor, this astringent variety offers a luscious, custard-like texture that melts in your mouth. The bright orange fruits are not only a treat for the palate but also a visually stunning addition to any garden. Perfect for fresh eating, baking, or creating exquisite preserves, the Sheng Persimmon is a versatile delight that promises to bring a burst of autumnal flavor to your table.

What to Know About the Tree

The Sheng Persimmon tree is a deciduous marvel that brings seasonal beauty to any landscape. This hardy tree features broad, glossy green leaves that transition to vibrant hues of yellow and red in the fall. Reaching a mature height of 12 to 15 feet, it offers a stately presence without overwhelming smaller garden spaces. Its striking bark and structured branches provide year-round interest, making it an attractive addition that goes beyond fruit production.

Harvest Season

Revel in the harvest season of the Sheng Persimmon, which graces us with its bountiful crop from late September to November. As the leaves begin to fall, the bright, orange orbs stand out against the bare branches, offering a picturesque scene right in your backyard. The fruit’s peak ripeness coincides with the cool embrace of autumn, providing a warm, sweet harvest that is both comforting and invigorating.

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.
