Nikita's Gift persimmon is a unique hybrid of Asian and American persimmons, developed in the Ukraine. This astringent persimmon produces flattish, red-orange fruit that is 2 ½ inches which ripens in mid to late October. At maturity, it can reach a height between 10-12 feet. It is self fertile. Nikita's Gift will begin bearing 2-3 years after planting. We graft the Nikita's Gift persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, 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.

Happy customer

I ordered two trees and they came securely packaged in a big box. Planted them day of arrival. the trees even had flowers on it already so i am excited to see if we get fruit the first year. The customer service from plantmegreen was also wonderful when i called to ask for a delivery day. 10/10 would order again.
