(Diospyros virginiana)

American persimmon (plaqueminier de Virginie) is a small to medium-sized tree that produces a sweet orange edible fruit in the fall season. American persimmons grow best in warm sunny climates in Canada such as southern Ontario or British Columbia 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.
