Categories: , ,


Bare Root Size:: 18- 24″

Details: The acorn shaped Hachiya is an example of the astringent type and must be eaten when it is soft or else it is far from tasty. Grafted Japanese persimmon cultivar. Low chill hours, good choice for milder climates. The mature fruit can be left out in boxes at room temperature to ripen. Sweet, flavorful, astringent until soft-ripe. The ripe fruit feels like holding a bag of jelly and the skin is translucent. A ripe Hachiya is sweeter than Fuyu. Zone 7 – 10.

Pollination: Self-pollinating with 2 or more plants.
