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.

    The tree is still alive but has only grown about a foot since planting. It does not appear to be healthy although other trees with similar needs are thriving. They were all planted at the same time and cared for the same so the only explanation I have is that it is a problem with the tree or it does not like southeast Louisiana weather.

    After first winter (northern edge of zone 5), top died and resprouted from below graft union. No signs of life yet after second winter. Interesting fruit to try but don't set your expectations too high if you have cold winters.
