Fuyu Sweet Oriental Persimmon aka Sweet Fuyu (Diospyros kaki) is an early-ripening variety prized for its beautiful fall color and its abundant crops of striking, bright orange, sweet and flavorful fruit. Fuyu Sweet is delicious eaten fresh and is also good for drying. It is ready to eat while it is firm like an apple but can be eaten when soft and sweeter. The Early Fuyu variety is almost identical except that it ripens even earlier.
Probably the most widely planted fruit tree in the world, Persimmons are found throughout Asia in almost every yard and orchard. Large, bright orange, Asian Persimmon features yellow, orange and scarlet fall color and their striking fruits remain on the tree long after leaf fall.

Hardy to 0 degrees F., Asian Persimmons are easy to grow in the Northwest and other regions of the U.S. with mild winters. Naturally compact trees, Asian Persimmons rarely exceed 12ft. in height.

Asian Persimmon is not bothered by pests or disease and likes half day to full sun and well-drained soil. Our varieties are self-fertile and hardy to USDA Zone 7. They begin bearing 2-3 years after planting and the fruit ripens in October.
