Persimmon Trees - Ichi Ki Kei Jiro (Non-Astringent)Diospyros kaki
USDA Hardiness Zones: 6-9
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

How to Plant
STEP 2) 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.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. 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.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Tree arrived in good shape and has been doing well.
2nd time ---
Best persimmons I have bought online by a mile. We keep getting more. And will keep getting more haha.
Good shipping and good service too.
I was pleased with my tree. Packaged extremely well..like I just brought it home from a local nursery. Eager to watch it grow this spring.
I had some doubts with the whole online plant buying thing because of my previous terrible experience with other online nurseries but my PlantMeGreen is completely different, from ordering to delivery. I ordered two trees and the description said 2-3ft but they are well above 3ft. One of the plants, Ichi Ki Kei Jiro, came in with full leaves and looked healthy and others looks like shipped with leaves but all the leaves dropped but still looking healthy with new buds emerging.
