Japanese Persimmon Tree

Among the oldest cultivated plants

The Highlights

    • Among the oldest cultivated plants, going back 2000 years
    • Introduced to Europe in the 1780s
    • Originating from temperate regions in China and Japan, the tree is well suited to the British climate
    • Produces countless apple-sized fruits when mature
    • Attracts wildlife, such as birds
    • Fruit needs to be left to ripen otherwise it will be very astringent
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE
