Questions re: hardy oriental persimmons (i.e. 'Ichikikei jiro' )
It looks like 'Ichi-ki-kei jiro' would be the best choice in a small, self-fruitful oriental persimmon (non-astringent) for zone 6 (NJ).
Some sites say it grows to only 8' and others say 10', but another says 20' tall and 6' wide.
1.If left unpruned for a decade or so, could I get it to grow around 15'?
2.Would this be the closest, taste-wise, to the common tomato-shaped persimmons in the store (i.e. brand: 'Sharon'), for zone 6 in trees smaller then 20'wide?
3.How many pounds of fruit does a mature 'Ichikikei jiro' produce?
This sounds like a very small tree/and the same in terms of production.
