Description

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 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
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.
Care Guide

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.

No dissappointment.

I liked my previous tree so much I ordered a second. Quick shipping, well packed, nice size and healthy specimen. I am in VA, so hopefully my zone is to the liking of this persimmon. I hesitate ordering trees online, but have no regrets here.

Beautiful tree!

Very happy! I received a tree that was more than 5 feet tall and with a nice shape. It's advertised to be 2 - 3 feet tall. Also, it arrived 3 days after it was shipped. Customer service was also excellent!!!

Healthy tree, big pot, small root ball

The tree arrived in a timely manner, was well packed, and arrived in good shape. It came in a large pot, but had clearly only been recently moved into that larger pot, as the roots were only established in the very center of the pot. This made it awkward to transplant.
