Asian persimmons that have stood the test of time in SE
I'm wondering what Asian persimmon trees all of you with connections to my general region (z7 parts of the SE and colder) know of in this region that have survived for decades. The only really mature tree like this that I've seen (or even know about) is the 'Tecumseh' right in front of the store at Edible Landscaping. Does anyone else have a 'Tecumseh,' by the way? That tree at EL, leafless and covered in fruit in early December, when I was there, was one of the most beautiful trees I've ever seen. Besides the striking fruit, it had the beautiful form of a mature tree, too. I want to grow trees like that, even if there are other varieties with better fruit (which I might want to grow, too.) I wonder why none of the other persimmons at EL seem to be anywhere near as mature as the 'Tecumseh'. Have they died over the years and needed to be replaced? Anyways, I'd love to hear about other trees that have similarly stood the test of time.
