Asian persimmon is a deciduous tree. This is an excellent fruit tree for ornamental use and makes an excellent specimen. The tree looks attractive when leaves have fallen in autumn, displaying the bright yellow-orange fruits throughout the canopy. It develops an attractive red autumn colour, but the two to four-inch-diameter fruits can be a big mess when they fall from the tree. The tree has good drought-tolerance. The fruit is a sweet, slightly tangy fruit with a soft to occasionally fibrous texture.
