persimmon for Austria (which one and where from?)
A friend of mine in Austria (near Linz) just bought his first house, and I think I'd like to buy him a persimmon tree, so I have two questions.
One, which variety should I buy for him? Trouble-free is my first priority. Which native (D.v.) varieties are most assured to set fruit without a pollinator? I've also thought about 'rosseyanka.' What thoughts would you all have? I think I've seen posts before from persimmon growers in Slovakia and Hungary on this forum, and I'd be especially interested in your recommendations.
Secondly, who sells persimmons in or to Austria? I have no idea what nurseries there are in central Europe or whether shipping within EU states is any trouble. I imagine if I limit my nursery options strictly to Austria I may not find anything. Any recommendations for a nursery?
