Yamoto Persimmon: Delectable Delights of the Orient

About the Fruit

Indulge in the exotic sweetness of the Yamoto Persimmon, a treasure from the East that has delighted palates for centuries. This persimmon variety is celebrated for its large, delectable fruits that boast a rich, honey-like flavor. The vibrant, orange-red skin encases a succulent, seedless flesh that is perfect for fresh eating, baking, or creating gourmet preserves. The Yamoto Persimmon is not only a taste sensation but also a nutritional powerhouse, packed with vitamins and antioxidants.

What to Know About the Tree

The Yamoto Persimmon tree is a deciduous wonder that offers seasonal beauty throughout the year. From its striking, glossy green leaves in the spring and summer to the dramatic display of golden-yellow foliage in the fall, this tree is a visual treat. Growing to a manageable height of 12-15 feet, the Yamoto Persimmon tree is adorned with small, bell-shaped flowers before bearing its bountiful fruit. This tree’s robust nature and adaptability make it a splendid addition to any garden.

The harvest season for the Yamoto Persimmon begins in the late fall, continuing into early winter. This period of abundance transforms the tree into a living sculpture, with fruits hanging like ornamental globes amidst the autumn leaves.

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.

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.
