Description: Non-Astringent Persimmon. Self-pollinating fruit tree with a slightly rounded form. Grows at a medium pace and produces fruit prolifically at a young age. Attractive neon yellow fall color. Yellow-white flowers in mid-spring give way to round, tomato-shaped orange fruit in late fall. Harvest fruit when color is at its fullest. Fruit has a chocolate-brown, firm flesh that can be eaten immediately after picking or allowed to soften, which will provide a sweeter flavor.
