An attractive, naturally compact tree, Miss Kim Asian Persimmon is prized for its weeping habit and long tropical-looking foliage that turns a beautiful deep red in the fall. This valuable, early ripening variety bears good crops of large, round, sweet and flavorful, reddish-orange fruit. Miss Kim fruit is ready to eat when soft and tender like a ripe tomato.
Probably the most widely planted fruit tree in the world, Persimmons are found throughout Asia in almost every yard and orchard. Large, bright orange, Asian Persimmon features yellow, orange and scarlet fall color and their striking fruits remain on the tree long after leaf fall.
Hardy to 0 degrees F., Asian Persimmons are easy to grow in the Northwest and other regions of the U.S. with mild winters. Naturally compact trees, Asian Persimmons rarely exceed 12ft. in height.
