Tanenashi Persimmon Tree: The Unadorned Delight

About the Fruit

The Tanenashi Persimmon is a treasure among fruit connoisseurs, celebrated for its honey-like sweetness and smooth, seedless flesh. This astringent variety, when fully ripe, transforms into a succulent treat, with its vibrant orange skin and jelly-like texture. The absence of seeds and the distinct, rich flavor make the Tanenashi Persimmon a perfect choice for fresh eating, divine desserts, or traditional dried persimmons, offering a natural sweetness that is unparalleled.

What to Know About the Tree

This persimmon tree is a deciduous wonder, shedding its leaves in fall to reveal a beautiful, stark silhouette against the winter sky. The Tanenashi Persimmon Tree is admired for its elegant growth, reaching a moderate height of 12-15 feet. It is a hardy species, adaptable to a range of climates, and requires minimal pruning. In spring, it boasts lovely foliage and inconspicuous flowers, with the added bonus of being self-fertile, making it an effortless addition to any garden.

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.

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.
