A round, orange fruit very similar to the Oriental persimmon. When unripe, it is astringent but turns a lusciously sweet and soft texture when ripe. A smaller fruit, with a few seeds it requires a male and a female tree for fruit production. The trees are shrubby in nature but can reach more than 10m if unpruned producing typical burnt orange autumn colours
Other Names: Common Persimmon Possum apples simmon
