The Ichi Ki Kei Jiro is the hardiest of all Asian persimmons. Nicknamed “Itchy,” this bountiful bearer features seedless, pucker-free fruit that is never sour — it’s sweet even when picked firm like an apple! It starts producing medium to large orange fruit in 2-3 years. At maturity, the Ichi Ki Kei Jiro reaches a height and width of 8-10 feet and is considered a dwarf. This non-astringent persimmon ripens in September or October and is self-pollinating. We graft the Ichi Ki Kei Jiro persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.

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.

Great little tree!

My Ichi Ki Kei Jiro arrived in great condition. It had beautiful, glossy leaves and a good root system. The plant arrived undamaged and showed little to no signs of shipping or transplanting stress.

My only complaint is that the shipping seemed a little slow. PMG waited 7 days to ship my order. The mail carrier delivered it 4 days after shipping. Eleven days seems like an eternity when your waiting for a special little tree.

Disappointed

My tree arrived with a top broken out about 3 inches, and had lost all leaves on one small branch. It is now struggling to get out of shock but by the end of each day it looks weaker.

Planted successfully

The persimmon plant arrived on time. Took root. The trunk is very thin and cannot survive without a support from outside.

Persimmon tree purchase

I recently purchased an Ichi Ki Kei Niro (non astringent) Persimmon tree from Plant Me Green. Arrived in pristine condition already leafed out and was in the ground the next day. I’ve never seen a Persimmon tree here in Colorado so this is an experiment. So far so good; tree seems to be doing well. Although rated as cold-hardy through zone 6 (ours is a tenuous zone 6a), I will give it protection next winter. I’m happy with this purchase as I always am with everything I have ordered through the years from Plant Me Green. Quality nursery stock at reasonable prices and reliable customer service. Plant Me Green is one of my top three go-to online nurseries.
