Now you can grow your own delicious crops of Sharon fruit or Chinese Persimmon fruit. Originating from China, but increasingly available in the supermarkets, the rounded, orange-yellow fruits have a non-astringent, sweet flavour when fully ripe, and make a lovely addition to fresh fruit salads.

The spreading branches of Sharon Fruit 'Fuyu' produce glossy, dark green leaves that turn to colourful shades of orange, gold and purple in autumn. The small, bell shaped, summer flowers give way to edible fruits that continue to ripen on the tree well into December, long after the leaves have fallen. This unusual, self fertile fruit tree makes an attractive addition to a sheltered border or trained against a sunny wall. Diospyros kaki is perfectly hardy in the UK but may appreciate some winter protection in particularly cold areas. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2m (6').

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 3 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 7 years.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Sharon fruit trees in rich fertile, well drained soil. For the best chances of fruiting choose a warm, sheltered position in full sun. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil to improve drainage and soil fertility. Plant Persimmons at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery.
More Info

Fruit and nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Water Sharon fruit trees well during particularly dry periods.

Persimmon trees are best grown as a multi-stemmed tree on a short stem. Prune Sharon fruit plants in spring before new growth starts. Select 3 or 4 low branches to form the main framework of the tree, and remove any misplaced, crowded and damaged branches to develop a well shaped plant. Thereafter pruning should be kept to a minimum and the plant should be allowed to develop naturally.

Harvest Sharon fruits from October to December when the fruits become soft.
