The Ichi Ki Kei Jiro is the hardiest of all Asian persimmons. Nicknamed “Itchy,” this bountiful bearer features seedless, pucker-free fruit that is never sour — it’s sweet even when picked firm like an apple! It starts producing medium to large orange fruit in 2-3 years. At maturity, the Ichi Ki Kei Jiro reaches a height and width of 8-10 feet and is considered a dwarf. This non-astringent persimmon ripens in September or October and is self-pollinating. We graft the Ichi Ki Kei Jiro persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.

First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. 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. 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. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
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.

Excellent quality

Tree was received in very good condition, better than expected. I appreciate the planting instructions. Have had the tree in the ground for almost 2 weeks and it is doing very well. Shipping was quick too.

Ichi Ki Kei Jiro Persimmon Trees

I ordered 2 of Ichi Ki Kei Jiro Persimmon Trees. They arrived fast in good condition. I planted them a couple of weeks now and the new leaves start to come out. Very happy with the purchase. Would purchase from this vendor again.

Nicely packaged for shipping

My trees arrived very nicely packaged and undamaged by shipping. I haven't been able to plant them yet, due to unending rain, but I know they'll be fine to wait since they are potted, and not bare root.
