Our online store is temporarily closed. We hope to be able to update the online inventory as soon as possible, but there have been a lot of unanticipated life events this season that have complicated our time for computer crunching.

Our self-serve plant stand is now open! Please stop by and take a look at some of our inventory or come by one of the local markets we're attending this season!

American Persimmon (Diospyros virginiana)

American Persimmon is not native to Michigan, but it is considered nearly native and found just south of our state’s borders. Its nearly native status means that it still provides more ecological benefit than fruit trees imported from across the country or overseas. The plant produces an orange delicious fruit reminiscent of the flavor of dates. The fruit can be eaten fresh or used in puddings, cakes, other desserts, or beverages.
