Fuyu Persimmon Wrapped for Protection.
We bought this home and discovered a Fuyu Persimmon tree. The lady who sold us the house said one day the fruit was orange. Next day it was gone. This worried us because that's exactly what happened to our peach on this property!
We noticed fruit turning color, and next we noticed bite marks on a few.
I don't know anything about persimmons, never having grown or tasted one, but I do know how to protect fruit from rabbits, voles, coons, coyotes and birds.
We completely surrounded the lower branches with gopher wire about 3' high. We then attached bird netting to that and completely encased that tree! Every day the fruit gets riper with no interference with nature's critters.
It's going to be a trick for us to figure out how to get under all that and pick a nice harvest!
Next big job is to learn what to do with all that harvest!
