EVERYTHING PERSIMMONS 

Our signature product that we grow is  Persimmons.

 Anything you can do with a peach you can do with a persimmon. They are a nutritious bright orange fruit with a sweet slight honey like flavor. A favorite among my grandchildren! 

We will have potted  trees throughout the year as long as the supply lasts.
