The Tam O Pan needs only 200 chill hours or 8 days of sub 45 degrees F temperatures to set fruit, and can do so with only one tree plant since it is self-fertile. The fruit of the persimmon cultivar, Tam-O-Pan, is large and almost 4 sided with an obvious indentation around the middle that surrounds the persimmon. The Tam-O-Pan Persimmon Trees were introduced into the United States from China by the Department of Agriculture in 1905. Normally the Tam-O-Pan Persimmons are astringent until they have fully softened and ripened to a red-orange color, when the pulp resembles jello with a rich flavor. An interesting fact is that even though the Tam-O-Pan Persimmons are astringent in the U.S. they are non-astringent is China and Japan. The size of the Tam-O-Pan Persimmon can approach 5 inches in size, about the size of a large grapefruit, and it begins to ripen its fruit in October in Georgia and can drop off the tree to some extend during huge crop years.

Pruning Information: Pruning may be required on Persimmon trees constituting eight feet or more in size so as to comport with UPS Shipping requirements. For this reason, the Persimmon tree(s) you receive may not be the actual height you ordered due to it being pruned up to one third of the total size immediately prior to shipping unless you have made prior arrangements with us to ship the product to you by motor freight. Although you should receive the size ordered if shipped by motor freight, note that shipping by motor freight will likely increase your shipping costs.
