Plant Info

Grow sumptious sweet Sharon Fruit - also known as Chinese Persimmon - in your own garden. These exotic trees are surprisingly hardy in the UK - even young trees will survive to -10C and when mature will withstand much more.

Trees are self fertile making them easy to cultivate.The foliage alone justifies a space in the garden with large lustrous glossy leaves through summer which change to a glorious coppery plum colour in autumn.  The fruits ripen in September and are sweet, juicy and ready to eat as they turn deep orange. Unpicked, they hold on the tree and are gloriously colourful even after leaf fall.

Grow in a sunny spot away from wall as Sharon fruit like plenty of air movement around them. A large free standing pot is ideal and the tree will reach a height of around 5ft.  Treat yourself to this really special and unusual tree!

++ Service rating : I have never had any problems with You Garden everything I have ordered always arrives and arrives in good condition
Product : Good size tree but still in its dormant state, cannot wait for the tree to wake up.
- Service rating : But it would have been Excellent if the instructions for planting and cultivation had covered pruning of the Diaspyrus Kaki and the Fig tree - they are scarcely as common place as Apples!
Product : Very tall size. Good box and packing but roots were largely dried out on arrival. No planting or pruning instructions.

Thanks for your feedback.

Adding specific instructions for all of the plants we sell would add significant cost and complication to the packing process - so we send a general care guide which suffices in 99% of cases.

I have emailed you some more info - if you have any further questions please let us know.
