These seeds were collected from Diospyros lotus, also known as Caucasian Persimmon, Date Plum, and Lilac Persimmon. This tree likes to live in full sun where it can grow up to 30 feet tall. The red, chartreuse, yellow, and green blossoms are on display from the middle of summer until early fall. This is one of the earliest plants to be cultivated. A fully ripe fruit is absolutely delicious. The fruit is edible and the tartness goes away after frost or drying. USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 10.
