The Sharon Fruit is juicy and sweet when ripe and an excellent food source for birds during winter as the fruits remain on the branches for a long time. The edible fruits can be eaten straight from the tree or added to fruit salads and yoghurts for a change of texture and flavour. Diospyros Kaki is an elegant, ornamental fruit tree with beautiful, leathery foliage that turns a vibrant orange during autumn. Its fragrant, tiny bell-shaped, yellow flowers appear among the large, leathery leaves in May. It starts to produce fruit from around the age of 6, but it is dioecious, so you may consider to order 2 or 3 plants to get a great chance to have both sexes (we have another listing for 3 plants). Fruits grow to tomato size. They may cross pollinate with the other Diospyros species.
The intended main use of this plant is to grow food for human consumption. We always recommend further research to learn the different ways in which the food source can be prepared and consumed.
