The Korean persimmon is a medium sized fruit that is an extremely heavy bearing persimmon cultivar, often even beginning to bear at an early age and at a short height of only 3 feet. The branch's wood is very strong and can easily hold the weight of the huge clusters of persimmons without breaking under the heavy load of fruit. Some persimmon lovers rate the Korean persimmon as the tastiest of all the varieties when the fruit fully ripens. The ripe stage means that the astringent stage is over and the persimmon skin becomes red in color, then becomes soft enough that the outside of the skin begins to crack. At that stage of ripening, the Korean persimmon tastes very much like a juicy peach - but sweeter and just a hint of tartness. Normally the astringent persimmon trees are favorites for eating because the fruit develops the most flavor and aroma when completely ripe, but if you bite into an astringent persimmon too early, then your entire mouth inside will pucker.
