An American persimmon selected by Professor Elwyn Meader in New Hampshire. The delicious orange fruits are extremely sweet with a tomato-like texture when ripe. A frost enhances their flavor. Unripe fruits can be frozen or dried. Use them in puddings, cakes and cookies, as desserts or toppings, or dry them for a date-like flavor. Fruit ripens in late September. The tree is ornamental with lustrous, dark green leaves turning crimson in the fall. Grows up to 30 feet tall, but it can easily be kept smaller. A self-fertile variety, and if it is not pollinated by other persimmons the fruit is usually seedless.
