Persimmon Trees - Hachiya (Astringent)Diospyros kaki
USDA Hardiness Zones: 8-9
The Hachiya Persimmon is an astringent, semi-self pollinating, deciduous tree that produces sweet, seedless (or near-seedless) fruit. The fruit is a deep orange red with a dark yellow flesh when it ripens in November. It is oblong conical in shape. Ripe Hachiya's are unbelievably soft, and are often almost liquefied into a silky smooth pulp inside. They will ripen once picked, so you can leave them on the counter to soften until you are ready to use them. The Hachiya is thought of as baking persimmons and are commonly peeled, pureed into a pulp to add to baked goods. They add stable moisture and a mild, pumpkin-like flavor to cakes and other treats. At maturity, it can reach a height and width of approximately 12 feet. We graft the Hachiya persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock.
USDA ZONES: 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.

Persimmon Trees - Hachiya (Astringent)
The plant was badly damaged by the time it got delivered. Almost all the side branches were broken. There seems to be one and possibly a second branch that may be alive, but it is not a healthy plant.
My Persimmon Tree - Hachiya Astringent arrived on time and in excellent condition. Leaves are already popping open.
