Cricket Hill Garden
Variety description: This very productive tree bears good size (1-1.5") fruit that are delicious when fully ripe.
Renowned Connecticut horticulturalist and nurseryman Dick Jaynes told us about a towering specimen of this tree that he grafted decades ago. It crops for about two weeks beginning in mid-October.
In the presence of a male pollinator, fruits will be seeded, in the absence, seedless.
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 sites are far from ideal.
Size at maturity: With pruning, trees can be maintained at 20-25'.
Pests and diseases: None of concern in the Northeast.
Hardiness: Will grow in USDA zones 5-9.
Plant size: Grafted tree 8-10" tall with a well developed root system.
Shipping restrictions: Cannot ship to California.
When we ship: Available for FALL 2021 shipping.
