Diospyros lotus - Date Plum

Choose pack size:

  • Diospyros lotus is a very elegant, ornamental, small fruit tree with a great autumn coloration. Green, tiny bell-shaped flowers are in bloom from mid to late Summer. The Date Plum produces very sweet tasting fruit when ripe with an exquisitely rich flavour. The fruits can be eaten straight from the tree or dried (grow to the size of a tomato). This is an excellent food source for the birds during Winter. Its fragrant flowers appear among the large, leathery, full leaves. It starts to produce fruit from around the age of 5, 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 excellent quality, 10cm tall starter plants on offer.
  • 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.
