Description

This is a new introduction. Over a year ago the material was collected from a very old tree in Coloma. The cutting was grafted in spring of 2019 onto a lotus seedling rootstock, and it grew vigorously over the last season.  This is the most unusual persimmon I ever tried.  Not very sweet, but very juicy and watermelon flavored. The fruits are elongated and small, like around the Sajo size and astringent until soft. I'd say this is a collector item until I evaluated it better in my garden.
