Height and spread about 12' - 15'. Fruits above average in size. Fruits are ripe when hard with orange color. zone 6 - 10.

This is Jiro #1 I bought from Edible Landscaping, in 2013. They grow their trees in pots. It's November 2014 and all the leaves have fallen off. The picture above shows the tree from summer 2014.
