Aah, Japanese Persimmon. So easy to grow. The tree is a gorgeous small tree with large leathery bright green foliage. Sets fruit easily but prefers another persimmon nearby to increase production. Fuyu fruit is squat shaped and non-astringent when ready to eat. Some like the persimmon flesh firm (like an apple), others like it softer (like a pear). Either way, it tastes great!
