The Tanenashi Persimmon Tree is a Japanese naitive that grows an astrigent type of persimmon that becomes sweet once ripened. These trees are ornamental with dark green foliage, bright orange fruit, and a pleasing natural shape. The Tanenashi Persimmon is a medium sized fruit tree that will reach mature heights of fifteen to twenty feet. The trees are upright and somewhat spreading, and can attain widths of ten to twelve feet.
Tanenashi Persimmon Trees are self-pollinating and will produce fruit from a solitary tree. As with most self-fertile fruit trees, the Tanenashi Persimmon will grow a higher yield when a pollinator tree is present. Tanenashi Persimmon Trees are suited for growing in the ground in USDA Zones 7 to 11. They are flexible as far as soil type, and can grow easily in any well-drained, loam soil.
