Giombo is one of the most highly regarded astringent persimmons. Both fruit appearance and fruit quality are rated very high. The fruit of Giombo is large - up to 5 inches- and has the shape of the Hachiya, but smooth texture and is very sweet much like the Saijo persimmon. Fruit are light translucent orange and thin pealed with a sweet, juicy, jelly type flesh. Giombo fruit are a connoisseur’s choice! Fruit ripens mid October through mid November. The tree is early to start growth in the spring and is sometimes injured by freezing temperatures. This medium size tree grows to a maturity size of 15+ feet. It is self fertile and its leaves will turn red in the fall. It is an excellent choice for the deep South and South Texas. We graft the Giombo persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock. USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, & Zone 9.

Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery (such as bare root trees). Our shipping schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is to ensure our trees do not stay in a box longer than necessary and arrive to you as healthy as possible. If a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your Plant Me Green package. Holiday shipping schedules are set by the carriers.
First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Plant persimmon trees in full sun to partial shade and in moist, well-drained soil. Water regularly after planting, until tree is established. Persimmon trees need about 40 inches of water every year. Persimmons only need pruning if limbs are crossing or in order to control the tree's size.
