The Powerhouse Fruiting Persimmon Trees - Great All Year!

Late-season golden fruit and highly ornamental trees, the Persimmon is a worldwide favorite, as well as a hardy native tree, growing throughout forests of the Southeastern US!


Known as Diospyros, Persimmons come in both astringent and non-astringent varieties.

  • Non-astringent varieties are as crisp as an Apple when ripe.
  • Astringent must ripen to be very soft before it can be eaten.

Ripening late in the season, typically September to November depending on the variety and your climate.

  • Fuyu Persimmon are non-astringent and can be eaten fresh off the tree while crisp.
  • Native American Persimmon are astringent and are ready to eat when they drop
  • Magic Fountain™ Weeping Persimmon is an astringent form
  • Hachiya Persimmon Trees are considered astringent
  • The new Matsumoto Persimmon features large round bright orange fruit with orange flesh and is a fantastic non-astringent Japanese variety!
  • Look for the new Saijo Persimmon Tree and find out why this egg-shaped astringent Asian Persimmon is regarded as "the very best one"! It is incredibly sweet and juicy!

Persimmon tree leaves can be used to make tea, and the Persimmon fruits can be eaten fresh, dried, or added to other foods, like salads and ice cream! Asian varieties are harvested when the skin becomes translucent and the calyx separates, while American Persimmons drop off the tree when ripe.

About Persimmon Trees


The Persimmon trees are fruit-bearing and fairly easy to grow! Growing throughout USDA hardiness zones 5 to 10 depending on the variety. Naturally resistant to many diseases, these fruit trees have unique spring blooms that look like little yellowish to white bells with four backward curling, waxy petals. They easily avoid late frost damage, as they are one of the last trees to bloom each spring.

Persimmon is a lovely ornamental tree with glossy green leaves and branches that give it a flowing appearance. The Persimmon tree grows as a multi-trunked or single-stemmed deciduous tree to about 25 feet high and wide. The glossy leaves fill out the tree all growing season and when the chill enters the air, the entire tree varies in color from red, to yellow, and orange in the fall.

Growing Persimmon Trees

Persimmon, like all fruit trees, need the Full sun to flower and fruit their best. Self-fruitful, you’ll of course get a far larger harvest with a pollinator partner tree. Create groves or orchards so that wildlife and birds and you will all get your fill!

However, even a single tree as a front lawn specimen or backyard shade tree will provide a great crop for you and your family as long as you have an enriched, well-drained sunny location. Mulch the site well and provide a regular amount of acid-loving plant fertilizer.

These trees can be drought tolerant once established, but to maintain a healthy, stress-free tree and bountiful crop, provide regular moisture throughout the growing season.

For a tree that stands out as a front yard focal point on an island berm or foundation accent tree - look no further than the Magic Fountain™ Weeping Persimmon that has it all!
