Quick Overview:

The Fuyu Persimmon is a beautiful fruit tree. It can grow up to 30 feet tall with an equal spread, so it is quite large for a fruit tree. As other persimmon trees, the Fuyu will ripen in the fall. The fruit looks like a light orange tomato. Fuyu Persimmons do not have near as much of a astringency problem as other persimmon cultivars.

Description

The Fuyu is the most popular fresh eating Japanese persimmon in the world. This non-astringent, large, round, flattened fruit has reddish-orange skin when ripe. The tree bears at a young age and is a heavy producer. The fruit is seedless and is excellent for fresh eating or cooking. The Fuyu ripens in November and is as sweet and crisp as an apple.
