About Fuyu Persimmon Tree... The Fuyu is the most popular fresh eating Japanese persimmon in the world. This non-astringent, large, round, flattened fruit has reddish-orange skin when ripe. The tree bears at a young age and is a heavy producer. The fruit is seedless and is excellent for fresh eating or cooking. The Fuyu ripens in November and is as sweet and crisp as an apple.
