Persimmons in a Pot - what rootstock is best?
I am pretty sure that I will be using the last spot on the south side of my house for a Nikita's Gift persimmon this spring. I would like to have one non-astringent but in my area I would have to provide winter protection.
I am wondering - if I chose a dwarf variety like Izu or Ichi, could I grow one in a very large pot? Would it have a sigificant amount of fruit? I could leave the pot in my garage during the coldest part of winter.
I was going to purchase the Nikita's Gift from Burnt Ridge. They also have Izu, but their Asians are on kaki rootstock. Could that work in a pot with the long tap root, or would I be better off with lotus or virginiana?
Any advice is very appreciated.
