Description

Considered an heirloom tree, the Imoto Persimmon is a juicy, sweet, non-astringent fruit that has a mellow, cantaloupe-like flavor. Delicious fresh off the tree in the crisp stage or when allowed to soften. The Imoto persimmon tree has a smaller maturity height (average about 10-12 feet) and the beautiful fall foliage makes Imoto a nice ornamental. Imoto Fuyu asian persimmon is a selection that came from the late Mike Imoto of Lindsay, California. Imoto Fuyu is very similar to Jiro persimmons except that the fruit is a little larger and ripens 7-10 days earlier, making it a good choice for cooler climates. We graft the Imoto Fuyu persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock.

USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9

How to Plant
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.
Care Guide

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.
