A unique way to bring fall color to the landscape, the fruits on Fuyu Imoto mature to brilliant orange in late fall and can even hang on into winter. That is, if you don't pick them all for eating. Many persimmons are delicious once truly ripe and very soft, but some don't love that texture. This variety is non-astringent, so you can eat the fruit while it's still firm. The flavor is delicious, rich and sweet with a hint of autumn spice, a little like nutmeg. You can also enjoy the persimmons in a decorative fruit bowl for a while before eating, as they'll continue to ripen after they've been picked. The tree reaches 20–30' tall. It starts producing fruit at a young age, and as it matures, it delivers tons of fruit. New foliage starts yellow–green in spring, becomes a nice glossy green in summer and then turns golden and red in fall, adding even more color to the scene. Diospyros kaki 'Fuyu'
