Diospyros kaki 'Saijo' (Saijo Astringent Persimmon)

Height: 15-20 feet
Spread: 15-20 feet
Light: Full sun.
Soil: Amended, moist but well-drained soil.
Description: Deciduous tree with a spreading, open habit and medium green foliage that turns gold, red and orange in fall. The fresh or dried leaves can be made into a tea. Small, white bell-shaped, spring flowers give way to a prolific crop of orange, conical fruit in early fall. Seedless flesh is slightly soft and honey-flavored when ripe. Suitable for fresh eating or drying. Prune after fruiting as needed to maintain shape. Self-pollinating, but will produce even more fruit if paired with a pollinator like ‘Chocolate’.
