Common Persimmon has dark green foliage with grayish green undersides on a tree with a round habit of growth. The glossy oval leaves turn orange in fall. The edible fruits are showy orange pomes carried in abundance in late summer and ripen in late fall. The fruit can be messy if allowed to drop on the lawn or walkways, and may require occasional clean-up. The sweet orange fruits are best for eating fresh or use in preserves.

This is an open multi-stemmed deciduous tree with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. This is a high maintenance plant that will require regular care and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting birds to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.
