Eureka Persimmon

Eureka persimmon tree is a heavy producing, medium-sized, flat-shaped, astringent persimmon of extremely high fruit quality.

The tree is relatively small, vigorous, drought and frost resistant, and self-fruitful. The fruit contains seed; however, seedless fruit can be obtained. Eureka has proven to be the best commercial variety of Texas persimmon.

The Eureka persimmon tree produces medium to large oblate fruit with bright orange-red skin. Like other varieties of astringent persimmon it should be frozen for a day or two and then thawed before eating. The ripe fruit is very sweet and juicy.
