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.

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.

The persimmon delivered!

We got our baby persimmon last week, and at half the price I expected to pay when all others in our area were sold out. I expected it to be scraggly and possibly bare root for less than $40, but it came moistly potted up with several shiny green leaves. It had a good start, I think. Not even root bound. Very, very pleased with this purchase!

My Hachiya from PlantMeGreen

I ordered 1 Hachiya persimmon tree and arrived in good condition in the box with pot. I planted it with directions and hope it will grow well.

My Hachiya from PlantMeGreen

The sapling arrived well boxed, but a little worse for wear. I planted it immediately and it appears to be doing ok. The company was very helpful and responsive to my request to fix a problem with the original order.
