Diospyros kaki in the Jardin des Plantes

Diospyros kaki, (Japanese Persimmon), is the most widely cultivated species of the Diospyros genus. Although its first published botanical description was not until 1780, the kaki is among the oldest plants in cultivation, known for its use in China for more than 2000 years.
