Tam Kam Persimmon: Crisp Delight in Every Bite

About the Fruit

Explore the luscious world of persimmons with the Tam Kam variety – a non-astringent treasure that offers a crisp, sweet, and slightly tangy flavor. As a cousin to the beloved Fuyu, Tam Kam Persimmons are perfect for those who appreciate a satisfying crunch in their fruit. Enjoy them fresh, toss them into a salad, or dry them for a chewy, sweet snack. These deep orange gems are not only delicious but also packed with nutrients, making them a healthy and indulgent addition to your diet.

What to Know About the Tree

The Tam Kam Persimmon tree is a deciduous wonder, shedding its leaves in the fall to reveal an elegant, bare structure in the winter. This tree is a true visual treat with its strikingly beautiful orange fruits hanging like ornaments from the branches. Maturing at a manageable height of 10-15 feet, it’s an excellent choice for both spacious yards and cozy garden corners. Its resilience and adaptability make it a joy for both novices and seasoned gardeners alike.

Harvest Season

Anticipate the joys of autumn as the Tam Kam Persimmon reaches its peak. Harvest season typically begins in late October and extends through December, providing a burst of color and flavor just as other fruits are bidding farewell. Its bountiful yield ensures you have plenty to share, savor, and store for the winter months.

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.
