First ripe persimmon of the season
NC-10 is consistently the earliest-ripening D.virginiana cultivar I grow, year-in/year out. Had my first ripe fruit from it yesterday (24 Aug). Orange, soft(had dropped from the tree), with no astringency.
First ripe fruits from NC-10 are typically beginning to drop around 10-15 Sept, but like almost everything else this year, it's ripening 2-4 weeks ahead of schedule.
HEAVY crop of fruit on most all the bearing-age persimmons this year - limbs are bent down in a major way with the developing fruits, especially on Rosseyanka and Keener.
