The Fuyu persimmon is shiny red-orange large flattened fruit with light orange, firm, crunchy, non- astringent sweet flesh. Unless planted with another variety the fruit is seedless because there are no male flowers. Fuyu persimmon can be peeled and eaten like an apple. Better for cool summer climates than Hachiya.

Shipping Note:  Our fruit trees and berries are delivered to you bareroot during their winter dormancy from January through May depending on USDA zone. Trees are shipped with your invoice and helpful planting directions. There is no minimum quantity required but shipping rate for an individual tree is expensive since UPS/Fed Ex charge a dimensional weight and an additional handling fee to ship a tree. You'll find it's cost effective to consider a handful of trees,vines or our helpful Tree Starter Kits.
