Kaki and Hybrid Persimmons winter protection for Zone 5A
All the Kakis persimmon's leafs had dropped off and the weather still nice so I wrapped and stuffed them with dry leafs and shredded papers before the -10F to -20F come to town. I used a small rope to pull all the branches close to the leader before wrapping the up. Here are the before and after photos of winter protection for Kakis persimmons.
