Fuyu, also know as Fuyugaki, is the most popular
non-astringent tree in Florida. Fruit is shaped like a big tomato and is crisp
and sweet when eaten hard. Fruit ripens over a 2 month period.
Hana Fuyu, also known as Yotsundani or Giant Fuyu. Fruit is slightly larger than most.
Saijo is considered the sweetest persimmons although
it must be soft to be eaten. The large upright vigorous tree is capable of producing
heavy yields. Fantastic fruit for drying.
Hachiya is a large, heart shaped fruit. They are high quality and jelly-fleshed with an attractive red skin coloration.
|Our trees are field grown whip-style. These trees are 8 to 14' tall in the nursery; however, they are pruned 3' to 4' tall for proper growth. This is where your branches will grow to make a sturdy tree to produce fruit. Height is not important, size of the trunk is. Trees are approximately 1 ½ to 2 ½ inches around. Trees are 1 year old with 2 year old rootstock. They take approximately 3 years to bear fruit. Trees are $24.95 each.|
|Three-Year Old Trees||We have some beautiful 2, 3 & 4 year old, 6-10' well-branched persimmon trees in the nursery. Many of these had fruit this year. They are $37 to $57 each, bare root. These large trees will not fit in cars, and we do not ship trees. Orders must be placed in advance so we can dig and package trees.|
We are discontinuing shipping.
