Factsheet F15: Diospyros kaki – the kaki persimmon


The kaki persimmon, also known as the Japanese, Chinese or Oriental persimmon, is a major fruit crop in as diverse localities as Japan, China, Korea, Western North America, Italy and Israel (where it is called the Sharon fruit). Though the tree is almost unknown in Britain, and then usually only for its spectacular autumn colour, fruits are borne in most summers in the South of England and with careful choice there is good potential for success in growing suitable cultivars for fruit (and even more as the climate warms up).
