Diospyros Kaki - Japanese Persimmon, Sharon Fruit

  • This is the well known Sharon fruit, juicy and sweet when ripe and an excellent food source for birds during winter as the tree holds the fruits on the branches for a long time. An elegant, ornamental 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.

  • (Leafless between November to April. Not branched.)
