Description

Giombo is one of the most highly regarded astringent persimmons. Both fruit appearance and fruit quality are rated very high. The fruit of Giombo is large - up to 5 inches- and has the shape of the Hachiya, but smooth texture and is very sweet much like the Saijo persimmon. Fruit are light translucent orange and thin pealed with a sweet, juicy, jelly type flesh. Giombo fruit are a connoisseur’s choice! Fruit ripens mid October through mid November. The tree is early to start growth in the spring and is sometimes injured by freezing temperatures. This medium size tree grows to a maturity size of 15+ feet. It is self fertile and its leaves will turn red in the fall. It is an excellent choice for the deep South and South Texas. We graft the Giombo persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock. 

USDA ZONES:  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.
