Maekawa Jiro can grow to be 12ft high. It can withstand very cold-hardy weather. When ripe and mature, the fruit will turn orange. Maekawa 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 onto native American persimmon root stock. USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, & Zone 10.

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.
