My collection of asian persimmons getting bigger but looking forward to growing the best tasting ones that could be growing in my zone 6b.Sayo,benshi,jiro tananashi,and also giombi now. THis one was grafted this spring and doing great.I am not looking forward to a repeat of 2007.All my tree's are grafted on native tree,s that i grew a few years back from seeds of a special tree, that grew on the shore of the lake,because of high water levels. All the persimmon are growing well. I have a russian beauty with a sayo at the top halve and fruiting very well this year. I have about another 20 native,s to graft next spring and hope to obtain four or five different variaties and then i,ll will be finaly happy.Because i live in a heavily wooded side and do not want to spray too much ilike to stay with persimmon and paw-paw,s. I have to do away with peaches, my plums were excellent this year but only sprayed 4 times. I have 4 varieties and hopefully no worms.These are all europeans and will ripened in a few weeks.So if somebody have a friend that could send me budwood next winter i would highly appreciate it. I looking forward sending out budwood of the persimmon that i have.
