Nikita's Gift Persimmon is easy to grow and typically starts producing fruit in 2 to 3 years after planting. Naturally compact it is the perfect addition to the collectors garden or the novice orchardist as it is rarly bothered by pests and diseases. It is a high producer (over 50 lbs) of sweet, flavorful, reddish-orange fruit in the fall. Plus the green foliage turns a beautiful rainbow or orange to yellow shades in the fall.
Although it is self-fruitful, a larger harvest is seen when planted near a male persimmon.
