Diospyros lotus - seeds
Qua thi, Date Plum. Beautiful cold hardy tree with smooth grey bark glossy dark green leaves that turn golden in the fall. Globose yellow fruit turns purple-brown when fully ripe. Like the persimmon, the date plum looses its astringency when fully ripe. The flesh is then very soft and rich in flavor. Plant seeds 1" deep. Seeds develop strong tap-root. Very slow germinating, may take a few months to germinate.
