I'm hoping to start an argument!
I've only had fruit from 5 or so of the dozen persimmons I'm growing; but based upon my results, & peoples comments, & ones from pick your own orchards,only a few stand above the rest
Astringent: Giombo, Hichaya, Kyung San Ban Si, Chocolate
Non Astringent: They're all pretty much the same; Fuyu is as good as any?
imo., Saijo is too small, Tamopan too bland, Ichi Ki kei tastes same as Fuyu & is a sparse bearer, Matsumoto Wase Fuyu tastes same as fuyu...etc
Anybody want to defend Tam Kam, Great Wall, Coffecake, Cinammon, Maru, Miss Kim, etc?
Conversly, what are the worst persimmons? Tamopan? Tanenshi? Lindy's Giant?
