Grow The Fruit of the Gods!
Persimmon literally translates to “Fruit of the Gods” and the Giant Fuyu Persimmon is twice the size of a normal persimmon… so you’ll get even more of the sweet, delicious fruit.
While American Persimmons can be astringent, but this Asian Persimmon is non-astringent, offering a rich sweetness with delightful hints of honey and mango.
And even though the taste is the standout feature, there’s a lot you’re going to enjoy about growing this fruit.
· Ornamental – sweet yellow flowers in June and stunning fall displays of yellow, gold and scarlet.
· Late harvest – fruit appears in October and stays on the tree all the way through January, even after the leaves have fallen off.
· Self-fertile – no need to plant multiple trees, within 2-3 years your single tree will start producing fruit… but plant 2 trees and you’ll get even more from both.
Hardly growing past 12 ft., you’ll find plenty of spaces in your yard where this tree will fit perfectly.
And you don’t have to worry about freezes as this tree is hardy and only requires 200 hours of chill time below 45.
Unlike a lot of fruit trees, you’ll get a harvest of 50+ lbs without a lot of maintenance.
And the longer you let the fruit stay on the tree, the softer and sweeter it gets – want it less sweet and a little more firm, pick it earlier… you decide how soft and sweet you want it!
While many fruit trees are riddled with pest and disease problems, there are no pests or diseases to worry about with this Persimmon tree.
The Giant Fuyu Persimmon is grown all over Asia and can be seen in nearly every orchard.
Popularity is catching on in the states, so don’t miss your chance to grow this tasty, easy-to-grow treat!

Giant Fuyu Persimmon Tree Pollination
Giant Fuyu Persimmon Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Giant Fuyu Persimmon Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
Plant in partial shade in well-draining soil. You can plant in sandy soil, but it is recommended that you amend with compost. Plant at least 15 feet away from other trees, buildings and structures, as the root system is very deep. Plant in a hole that is twice as wide but only as deep as the root ball.
Watering: Water deeply after planting to establish the root system. Water weekly during the establishment period, but do not overwater. This tree is drought tolerant, but does not like to be over watered. There’s usually no need for additional watering after the tree is established.
Pruning: Prune during the dormant season into an open vase shape to promote healthy growth. You can also prune to a single leader if overproduction occurs and weighs down the branches.
Fertilizing: Fertilize with a general purpose fertilizer in spring, if desired.

The tree arrive on time and I transplanted right away. It’s seem to be doing good. Can’t wait to order more tree
Tree(s) arrived quickly and professionally wrapped and packaged - very healthy tree. My tree (purchased last year) put out an abundance of beautiful fruit. Enough for me to share with my neighbors & family. I’ve since purchase two additional trees. Beware of the ‘birds’ :)
The service was great, the delivery fast, packaging was expertly done and the quality exceptional. Thank you ‼️
Very happy thanks

They didn’t ship the giant in February as stock ran out and would not ship unless to their standards. Worth purchasing from them. All three trees have blooms for fruit total do 8 on all three. Nicely boxed and wrapped for protection. Highly recommend. They graph there trees to allow fruiting Sooner. Very healthy looking. Thanks !!!
