Astringent Persimmon trees are grown both for their beauty and also their fruit. They are hardy, robust, deciduous trees. During the Autumn months their leaves change colours to reds, pinks, corals and oranges before falling. The fruit of the astringent persimmon needs to be allowed to fully ripen and be completely soft before eating. It is very sweet, juicy and pulpy and delicious both on its own or in a variety of dishes and preserves and can even be dried.

Please contact us if you have any questions about buying this fruit tree.
