Persimmon Advice....

Morning Guys!

Well I just have room for 1 persimmon. MIL loves them and the neighbor she used to get them from has since moved and the tree has met it's maker.

I was thinking of planting Hachiya. She likes the ones that are astringent and turn to jelly when ripe.

Is Hachiya the best of this type if I can only plant 1?

Also can I keep this tree at say 10'? Prune like peaches or like apples?

Thank You for your time and advice! :)

Jen,

My aunt live in LA and she had a couple of Hachiyas in her back yard loaded with fruits every year. She kept them around 12 feet. Self-fertile, large fruits, and very sweet.
