Maekawa Jiro can grow to be 12 ft high. It can withstand very cold-hardy weather. When ripe and mature, the fruit will turn orange. Jiro can be eaten while its flesh is still firm, like an apple. Ripens early, a week or so earlier than Ichi. A handsome yard tree. Self-fertile. We graft the Maekawa Jiro persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock.

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.
Plant looks good on arrival. I planted it into ground 2 days later. Plant is looking even better now. Can't wait to see when I will harvest my first persimmon :)
All trees looks healthy
