What is Persimmon 'Okesa gaki'

Persimmon 'Okesa gaki' (scientific name: Diospyros kaki 'kinokawa gaki') is a kind of persimmon (scientific name: Diospyros kaki). It is surprising that the flesh is filled with dark astringency. There is not much taste or sweetness.

Persimmon 'Okesa gaki' (Okesa gaki, scientific name: Diospyros kaki 'Okesa gaki') is a trademark name for the persimmon tree (scientific name: Diospyros kaki). The official name of the variety is 'Hiratanenashi gaki' and it is called 'Hatchin-gaki' by the variety name. It is a branch variant of the 'Tonewase' flat-kerneled persimmon. This is the brand name of the Hiratanenashi persimmon and was commercialized in Sado City, Niigata Prefecture, which is famous for its Sado-okesa. The fruit is a flat square shape without seeds. Since it is an astringent persimmon, it is shipped without the astringency, and in the process, it becomes soft and melted sweet.

Flower color: Yellowish-white to brown (detached); corolla: a joint blossom of the vase-shape that splits into four pieces during the flowering period and is reversed; distribution period: mid-October to mid-November.
