DIOSPYROS KAKI

What is it? Where does it come from?

Origins: Diospyros Kaki is a fruit produced by a fruit tree: the persimmon. 
It is native to Eastern China and is also cultivated in Korea, Japan and the Mediterranean Basin.

The fruit matures in the fall, when it takes on a bright orange color. 
The active ingredients come from the Kaki leaf.
