Am Persimmons: Meader vs Nakita's Gift or ...
I live in Delaware & would like to plant a self fertile American Persimmon tree that would grow to 40-50 ft. I've heard quite a bit about Meader Pers., has anyone had any experience w/ a Nakita's Gift? I'm not sure how big N.G.would grow. Some winters are cold w/ snow & ice storms so I'll need something sturdy. Summers are pretty hot & humid & the soil has a lot of clay.
Can u suggest any other self fertile American Persimmons That won't need to be babied?
I have Li & Lang Jujubis, 2 pawpaws, a white mulberry, an everbearing Mulberry, Blk berries & raspberries that are doing well which are pretty care-free,(Organic). Also have a semi-dwarf apple tree & a dwarf nectarine, a little less carefree.I hope an American persimmon will round things out. (Can u tell I love fruit?).
