  • Contessa - Well studied and documented cultivar of Indiana origin, this cultivar is an open pollinated seedling of Knightsville. Large Fruited and so very tasty, from observation this will make a large tree but does produce very heavy crops of sweet delicious persimmons. Would be an excellent tree for pulp production, ripens mid-season.
