Persimmon Trees - Weeping (Astringent)

Diospyros kaki 'Pendula'
USDA Hardiness Zones: 7-9


The Weeping astringent persimmon is a very rare variety of Japanese persimmon. It has a weeping form and must be staked up when young.  The weeping persimmon produces a medium sized, conical shaped fruit that hang off the tree like teardrops. This astringent persimmon ripens in late October through mid November. If staked, it can reach a height of 6’ tall and 2’ wide in 10 years. We graft the Weeping persimmon onto native American persimmon root stock. 

USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, and 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.
