Chocolate persimmon is an old variety that has BROWN, SUPER SWEET flesh when ripe! Most supermarket customers associate brown with rotting fruit, but in this case, the brown flesh is super sweet and tastes like candy! This is a great, long-lived fruit tree and the fruit are excellent. This tree will produce fruit without a pollinator, but the flesh will stay yellow. When pollinated with any other persimmon trees, it produces seeds, which give the flesh the brown color when ripe. 100 chill hours USDA zones 6-10.
