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.
Excellent tree that was bigger than I expected. Wonderful condition, it’s in the ground and looks great. Will buy from Plant Me Green again.
Our persimmon tree arrived in great shape. We have planted it and the leaves have fallen. It is well mulched now we wait for spring. The tree was larger than I expected which was a plus, and it had a really good root system.
Planted fall 2021, strong stem and pruning form of 3 arms (peace sign, baby) and still holding on to its leaves so this bodes well for its establishing roots. Shipped quickly and safely packaged. 10/10!
Received in good shape. Planted same day and appears ok.
The first tree we received was nice and tall. Unfortunately it died a week after that, probably due to transplant shock. They sent a replacement immediately. The second plan is even bigger and nicer. It is doing well so far. Can't wait for it to get bigger. First class customer service!
