Diospyros kaki, better known as the Japanese Persimmon, Kaki Persimmon or Asian Persimmon in North America, is the most widely cultivated species of the Diospyros genus Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

The Persimmon tree is native to China and Japan, where it has been cultivated for centuries. It was introduced to Europe and California (where it has become D. virginiana or American persimmon) in the mid-19th century. It is commercially grown in Italy, Spain and the south of France, where it is known as Kaki, but it is still most common in the Far East.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that Persimmon can occasionally induce symptoms of food allergy in sensitised individuals; however, few studies have been reported to date. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
