Growing in Phoenix: Persimmons are beautiful trees with glossy green leaves that droop and branches that give them a flowing, tropical vibe, even though they are not tropical trees. The leaves offer Fall color in the garden, turning to shades of yellow, orange, and red. Tea is made from the fresh or dried leaves of persimmon plants. The ripe fruit in fall adds to the ornamental appeal in rich shades of deep persimmon orange. The fruits are classified as astringent and non-astringent. The non-astringent type is as crisp when ripe, similar to apples. The astringent varieties must ripen to be very soft and jammy before they can be eaten, or they have a very unpleasant mouthfeel.  In Phoenix they do best with afternoon shade, no winter protection is needed. It can be a container grown in a 30-gallon or larger container.
