Description Germination
An unusual fruit tree from the Americas.  Worthy as an ornamental with its luxurious leathery dark green foliage, thick petaled bell like creamy white flowers, but its sweet fruit is much prized and considered tastier than its Asian (D. kaki) cousins. How good is it? When translated the genus means 'Fruit of the Gods'.  Best (read...awesome!) when harvested after being touched by frost as this sweetens the golden-buff fruits.  Tropical tasting fruit doesn't keep long after picking (heck, you'll be eating them with abandon anyway...raw or cooked). Flesh texture is somewhere between cooked apples and firm custard.  Awesome fall colour and also a great shade tree. Not self fertile
