The flowers may be followed by clusters of bright yellow to orange-yellow fruit. Duranta's are tropical to subtropical evergreen shrubs but can easily be trained into medium-sized tree standards or medium to large formal or informal hedges in zone 10. Item# 11189

After losing its cloak of orange, yellow, and red fall color the honey sweet, dark orange and black, 1-1/2" wide fruits of the American Persimmon become readily visible. The fully ripe fruit of this easy to grow native tree will not be likely to win a beauty contest with dark red orange skin speckled with black but on your palette it is like eating persimmon candy. Provide the American Persimmon with good drainage and give it plenty of room to grow. Our plants are seedlings and you will need a male and female for pollination. Item# 10930

The ripe fruit are devoured by a variety of birds and other wildlife. Human nibblers should be aware that the fruit does contain a large pit.
