Diospyros kaki 'Izu'
Variety description: A choice non-astringent cultivar from Japan. Reported to be a natural dwarf, with mature trees only reaching 10-12' high. This cultivar is best grown in zone 7 and above.
Site requirements: Persimmons grow best in a full sun location with fertile, well-drained soil. They are quite adaptable and will grow in poor, dry soils, though such conditions are far from ideal.
For growers in colder climates, Asian persimmons grow very well in hoophouses or in large containers which are protected for the winter.
Size at maturity: 10-12' tall and 6-8' wide.
Pests and diseases: None of concern.
Hardiness: No protection needed in USDA zones 7-9. Winter protection necessary in zone 6.
