Imoto Persimmon is a juicy, large, sweet, non-astringent fruit (Fuyu type) that has a mellow, cantaloupe-like flavor. Delicious fresh off the tree in the crisp stage or allow to soften. Mature tree size is comparatively dwarf (average height about 10-12 feet) and the beautiful fall folliage makes Imoto a nice ornamental.
