- Diospyros kaki, commonly called kaki, Japanese persimmon or Oriental persimmon, is a deciduous tree with a rounded spreading crown that typically grows to 20-30’ tall. Outer branches may droop.
- This tree is noted not only for its edible fruits but also for its excellent ornamental features. Cultivars of this tree produce the persimmons sold in supermarkets today. Kaki is native to India, Burma, China and Korea, and is widely cultivated in Japan.
- Oval to obovate leaves (to 6" long) emerge yellowish-green in spring, mature to glossy green in summer and turn gold to red in fall. Trees are usually dioecious (separate male and female trees), but some trees have both male and female flowers and in some cases also some perfect flowers.
- Fragrant, non-showy flowers bloom in late spring, with the creamy-white female flowers appearing solitary and the pink-toned male flowers appearing in clusters of three. Edible persimmon fruits (to 3-4" diameter) mature to bright orange in late fall, and may persist on the tree into winter.
- Fruits are particularly noticeable and attractive when hanging on a tree after leaf drop. Fruits are classified as astringent or non-astringent. Fruits are commonly sliced or eaten whole. Flesh may be added to salads, pancakes, cookies, jellies, jams, marmalades, syrups, puddings, ice creams or pies. Persimmon leaves can be used to make teas.

"Came in perfect condition--thank you!"
"Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."
"This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"
"Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"
"This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
