Persimmon Saijo End of November

Saijo Asian Persimmon

Diospyros kaki

Saijo is an orange, conic-shaped fruit. The skin of the fruit has no cracks. The fruit is usually seedless and the tree has an annual bearing tendency. Ripe when soft with an elegant flavor, Saijo matures its fruit in November at the nursery. Vigorous, upright and spreading, the 15' to 20' tree doesn't need a pollinator. It is popular in Japan to dry the fruits under the eaves of roofs. Its name is synonymous with "Mr. Elegant" or "the very best one". Space @ 12' circle. Zones 6-9.
