PERSIMMONS

Chocolate
Small to medium size, oblong, bright red skin. Sweet, spicy, firm, brown flesh, superb flavor-the choice of connoisseurs. Astringent until ripe. Good pollenizer for Coffeecake™ (Nishimura Wase). 200 hours. Self-fruitful.
Coffee Cake
Unique spicy-sweet flavor that instantly evokes images of cinnamon pastry, hot coffee and morning sunshine. Coffeecake™ ripens about the same time as Chocolate and about three weeks to one month earlier than Fuyu. Coffeecake™ Persimmon is non-astringent and can be eaten while still firm. Hardy, attractive tree, practically free of pests and disease. Estimated chilling requirement: 200 hours or less. Another persimmon variety required as a pollinizer. Gosho or Chocolate are the best pollenizers for Coffeecake™.

Giant Fuyu
Larger, not so flat as Fuyu. Crunchy when ripe like Fuyu. Sweet, flavorful, non-astringent. Easy to grow, cool or hot climates. Fall harvest. 200 hours. Self-fruitful. Compare Giant Fuyu to Fuyu
Hachiya
