Japanese Raisin Trees

Raisin Tree

REALLY rare and hard to find! (Hovenia dulcisThis lovely deciduous shade tree is cultivated in Japan for its fruit. Actually you eat the swollen stalks that the fruit grows on. In June the tree is covered with masses of 2-3 inch fragrant, creamy-white flowers growing in clusters. Bees, butterflies and birds love them. In September, when the thickened stalks fall to the ground, they are ripe and will have a sweet, pear-like flavor. Each stalk is small, but the tree produces bountifully. The tree grows in all but constantly or mostly wet sites and likes a fertile, sandy loam in part to full sun. Mature height is 25-30 feet by 20-25 feet wide. Self fertile.
