Title: Raven Persimmon
Post by: Nick C on February 14, 2022, 10:52:19 PM
I picked up one of these towards the end of last year. The nursery's description stated the fruit are unusual and glossy black. Does anybody have any experience with this variety? Im intrigued to see what these fruits actually look like.

Hmmm. This may be a kurogaki or Huk Gam which I have been looking for. What nursery did you purchase it from?

One Green World. Those trees are pretty expensive $49.95 plus shipping. I want one but the last few shipments I got from them were pretty raggedy. That and I have 11 Persimmons already.
