This is a very large hybrid of the Fuyu Jiro. The Giant Fuyu ripens in November and is non-astringent. Dark orange color when ripe and has a delicious smooth texture. The tree has outstanding ornamental qualities when it displays its beautiful fall foliage color. Bright orange-scarlet fruit remain on the tree long after the leaves have dropped. Grows so well in this neck of the woods. My neighbor gave me some just picked from his tree and what a treat they were.
To serve these huge persimmons I slice them into halves and cut into wedges to show their beautiful design inside.
These two were so beautiful I decided to quickly paint them on a 7x5 inches canvas panel to hang in the dining room.
