Fruit Trees > Temperate Fruit Trees > Persimmon > Dwarf Persimmon - Fuyu (NA)
Fuyu is a semi-dwarf variety, not a true dwarf, but well suited to growing in small backyards as, with pruning, it can be kept to 2m high. The fruit is large and flat, orange-red in colour with a sweet, mild flavour. Great eaten crunchy but just luscious when left to go soft. Besides producing delicious fruit, Persimmons are highly ornamental with their beautiful autumn foliage. Non astringent, so can be eaten when still hard. When young, protect from hot afternoon sun, and when dormant, from wet conditions.

Very tasty fruit. Tree has excellent colours in autumn. Branches are susceptible to breakage, so need to prune long horizontal branches to half size in winter.

One of my favourite everyday fruits. Love crunching on the non-astrigent varienties. All year this tree has been a long twig so I look forward to spring growth. Otherswise it may be dead and I don't know it. Maybe because I didn't water it.

Persimmon - Fuyu (NA)

Hard to establish bare rooted in Armidale, best planted out late spring after rooting in pots. Fuyu fruit are excellent, the equal of astringent Dai Dai Maru with the advantage of being able to be eaten while firm. Very heavy crops from both.
