Coffee Cake Persimmon, Nishimura Wase persimmon trees are not as well known as the common Fuyu persimmons, but the fruit is quite different with its delicious Coffee Cake flavor that is juicy and spicy like cinnamon and sweet, but not too sweet. The Nishimura Wase persimmons are almost globular in shape and more cold hardy than the Fuyu (USDA zones 7 to 10). This exotic Japanese persimmon is seedless, if it is not cross-pollinated by another persimmon cultivar, and the taste is astringent, but if the Coffee Cake persimmon is cross pollinated by a Chocolate (Maru) persimmon cultivar, the flavor is considered to be that of an ultimate gourmet confection. The pulp is best tasting when the color changes from orange to brown.
