what do you think of Tecumseh persimmon?

cousinfloydJune 4, 2014

Anyone grow it? Reports from Wye Plantation and Edible Landscaping both seem to indicate that it's an especially easy and long-lived variety.

CF,

I found an old thread that Creekweb had one.

I have a Tecumseh tree that's about seven years old. It's thought to be a Great Wall seedling, and the two are somewhat similar, but the Tecumseh ripens later, and the tree is faster growing and larger. I prefer my very prolific dwarf Great Wall. The Tecumseh and a number of my other persimmons were exposed to at least -11F this winter with only a sheet of ice for protection, so its survival is questionable."
