The old classic American persimmon, Early Golden, is the parent of this variety. Garretson was named in 1920 and is still considered as one of the most cold-hardy and reliable choices. High quality, deep orange fruit is somewhat superior to Early Golden in both size and flavour. It also ripens a week earlier. Garretson is resistant to anthracnose, has gorgeous fall foliage and produces well.
