(Diospyros virginiana)

American persimmon is a small to medium-sized tree that produces a sweet orange edible fruit in the fall season. Persimmons grow best in warm sunny climates and do not tolerate extreme cold. The leaves are oval rounded, 10-15cm and dark green with a glossy shine when young. The fruit is orange-yellow in colour, round to oval in shape, 3-5cm in diameter, typically ripening in the late fall and sweetest after cold weather.

Germination: Soak in water for 24 hours, then cold stratify for 90 days. Plant in a well-drained, sunny location.

Packet contains at least 15+ seeds.
