OTHER: The Italian Persimmon is native to southeast Europe & southwest Asia. This heirloom species is one of the oldest cultivated plants & is both a parent plant & rootstock provider for many Asian persimmon trees. The trees grow at a medium rate, & have glossy green leaves. They are able to grow in most soils including heavy clay & rocky soils.

Spring flowers develop into fruit as the seasons progress. The fruit starts out yellow & turns orange to red & deeper purplish tones as it ages. The mature fruits typically measure between ½” & ¾”. The ancient Greeks dubbed it “God’s Fruit”, but a more useful descriptive nickname is The Date Plum, because the fruit tastes like a cross between a date & a plum. These Persimmons can be enjoyed as a juicy fresh fruit raw off the tree, dried, or made into jams & countless other delicious treats. The fruit contains lots of sugars and vitamins, & allowing the fruit to go through a frost or drying it brings out its natural sweetness. The Italian Persimmon is dioecious, but female trees will still produce seedless fruit without a male tree present.
