Persimmon Trees

Delicious Fruit and Gorgeous Fall Foliage

Until you have tasted a persimmon fresh from your garden, you can't imagine the delectable succulent sweet flavor of this Asian delicacy. And now you can have bushels of the fruit every autumn from an attractive, easy to grow tree that thrives in temperate and warm climates! The fruit is about the size and shape of an orange but think of a tomato when deciding when to pick it. Once it is soft and tender like a ripe tomato, it's ready to leave the tree. This usually happens in mid-fall. Prepare to fall in love with the fruit the rest of the world eats regularly -- gourmet, velvety, flavorful persimmons right from your garden, deck, or balcony.
