Variety description: This cultivar is one of the finest crosses to result form the American persimmon breeding work by Jerry Lehman of Terra Haute, Indiana. This early to mid-season ripening cultivar. Large fruit has a reddish orange blush and an excellent sweet flavor. Trees bear heavy crops.

Pests and diseases: None of concern in the Northeast.
Hardiness: Will grow in USDA zones 5-9.
Plant size: Grafted tree, about 1-2' tall with a well developed root system. Will likely produce fruit in 2-4 years if given good care.
