You can eat Sharon fruit raw with salads or feta cheese and olives. Or you can bake it in savory dishes or sweet puddings and desserts. Persimmon goes well on cheese board or with a side or mascarpone. You will also find it nutrient packed and working really well in a post-workout smoothie.
Traditionally grown from grafted stock, persimmon is the frost tolerant fruit tree that will love a slightly wet soil. Ideal in the UK and USDA zones 4-9. Growing to 7m in height, it requires a spot with sun and adequate drainage. Ready to harvest Sharon fruit from around year 7 and for decades to come.
If you have soil that can be best described as moist, damp, wet or even boggy then this may be a helpful growing guide for you.
