The Fuyugaki, or Fuyu, Persimmon is a small deciduous tree that produces medium-large, tomato shaped fruit that tends to have distinct indentations that run up and down the persimmon making it appear almost square. This non-astringent persimmon is deep orange with a light orange flesh, and it ripens in late October or early November. The fruit is sweet and mild and can be eaten fresh or used in jellies and pies. It also keeps well so you can save some for later! Besides the fruit, the Fuyugaki is a good choice because it is pest and disease resistant. The tree grows to 15-20 feet tall and 15-20 feet wide. It requires full sun to partial shade and well drained soil. It is semi-self pollinating. We graft the Fuyugaki persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock. USDA ZONES: Zone 8, Zone 9.

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.

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.

Perssimon Fuyugaki looks bad

Planted like my Ichi right away. Seemed a bit dry. Now the leaves are dropping
and outcome looks bleak. Stems are green. Had protection support and was
hardening off with partial shade. Leaves not so. I took
a couple of pics but could find how to post.
