Date Plum Persimmon Tree Seeds (Diospyros lotus) 5+Seeds
Date Plum Persimmon is a deciduous fruiting tree that is native to Middle East and South Asia, especially from China and Japan. It was introduced to Britain in 1597 and was cultivated in England in the 17th century but has never been a common feature in gardens and generally remains limited to collections. Although it is a hardy species, outside of its native habitat it rarely reaches its maximum height of 90 feet (usually up to about 30 feet tall). This member of the Ebony family is a beautiful tree with smooth grey bark, glossy dark green leaves that turn golden in the fall and small yellow edible fruit.
