Air-layering Kaki persimmon for instant fruited tree
I am propagating three more Ichi Ki Kei Jiro persimmon trees by choosing the previous fruited branches from last year and air-layering them. This will give me instant fruited persimmon trees for next year. I will unwrap the foil sheets in the middle of July to check for rooting. Once rooted, the trees will be potted and over wintering in the shed. I will plant them in the ground next spring.
