Tamopan Oriental Persimmon

Regular price $50.00 Sale

Diospyros kaki 'Tamopan'

A very large persimmon-- often 3" to 5" across-- that is oblate and very flat, with marked depressions at the stem. The skin is reddish orange, thick, and tough. The flesh is light orange and astringent until ripe. Ripens late, but is rather hardy.

The fruit ripens after the leaves have fallen. The insides of the Tamopan could be scooped right out of the tough skin, which serves as an excellent bowl. The gelatinous, sweet interior has hints of cantalope. * Deer May Browse *
