The most widely cultivated of these is the Oriental Persimmon, Diospyros Kaki. Diospyros is in the family Ebenaceae, and a number of non-persimmon species of the genus are grown for ebony timber. Diospyros is a genus of over 700 species of deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs. The majority are native to the tropics, with only a few species extending into temperate regions. Individual species valued for their hard, heavy, dark timber, are commonly known as Ebony Trees, while others are valued for their fruit and known as Persimmon Trees. Some are useful as ornamentals and many are of local ecological importance. Species of this genus are generally Dioecious, with separate male and female plants. When the fruit of the persimmon is ripe, it is golden yellow or red, which means that the days are booming. The fruit of persimmon is rich and round, and the shape is as good as it is.
Because “persimmon” and “thing” are homophonic, it is used to mean “everything is good“. The word Diospyros comes from the ancient Greek words “dios” and “pyron“. A popular etymology construed this as “divine fruit“, or as meaning “wheat of Zeus” or “God’s pear” and “Jove’s fire“. The dio-, as shown by the short vowel “i“, has nothing to do with “divine“, dio- being an affix attached to plant names, and in classical Greek the compound referred to “the fruit of the nettle tree“. The word persimmon itself is derived from putchamin, pasiminan, or pessamin, from Powhatan, an Algonquian language of the eastern United States, meaning “a dry fruit“. Bonsai (planted in a flat pot) instead are miniature trees, which are intentionally kept dwarf, even for many years, by pruning and reducing the roots. With this particular cultivation technique, the plant is directed, during the growth process, to assume the desired shapes and sizes, also with the use of guide wires, while fully respecting its vegetative and functional balance.
