Persimmon Trees - Rosseyanka (Astringent)Diospyros virginiana x kaki (hybrid)
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-8
Rosseyanka is a truly amazing blend between Asian and American Persimmons. Combining traits of both fruits, now the taste of Kaki persimmons can be enjoyed in the North. More of the American parent is evident in leaf and tree form. Fruit tastes like a blend of soft Asian persimmon and ripe native persimmon. Fruits are seedless! The candy like orange fruit has a rich flavor enjoyed into the winter. Good orange leaf color in the fall. Fruit size is larger than native persimmon, approximately 2-3 inches. Must be soft to eat. Fruits will "wrinkle" when ripe. Height 15'-20'. We graft the Rosseyanka onto native American persimmon root stock.
USDA ZONES: Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, & Zone 8.

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.
Worth the price compared to other nurseries. Received 20% for a Mother's Day Special. My order arrived here in Northern Ohio via FedEx the 2nd week of May, within 3 days of shipment. They were packaged well in a large sturdy box, both trees were about two feet tall, healthy and fully leafed. One tree already had 24 blossoms and the other had 10. I trimmed off all the branches before planting, leaving only the main trunk. Nearly two weeks later, they are thriving nicely!
I got my little tree fast and healthy. Planted in large pot. Unfortunately,couple of days later,we got night frost,and all pretty young leafs died. I just hope the tree is going to survive. Will definitly order from this company again!
Received the tree in excellent condition, well packed with some leaves beginning to shoot out. Has been in the ground for a week now and there are more healthy leaves anxious to show off. I live in a zone not appropriate for the Rosseyanka but it is thriving. Great Job Plant Me Green. All the other trees I have purchased bare root from Plant Me Green are growing beautifully because Plant Me Green ships the most healthy plants, well packaged. Thank you Plant Me Green!
