Persimmon - Fuyu (NA)

Hard to establish bare rooted in Armidale, best planted out late spring after rooting in pots. Fuyu fruit are excellent, the equal of astringent Dai Dai Maru with the advantage of being able to be eaten while firm. Very heavy crops from both. | Steve Walkden-brown - Armidale, NSW 10-Jun-2007

Persimmon is just recently purchased as part of the organic friut forrest that i am converting my back yard into. Fuyu is one of 19 dwarf friut trees already in the ground, and one of 30 trees planned to be planted. All trees have been by mail order from Sunstail, woodbridge and yalca and i waiting for the production of some of the outstasnding trees from Daly. Persimmon is selected as it is not a well known friut and one of the unique tress that will be visuallly attractive as well as productive. The tree has been in the ground for 4 weeks as have all but 2 apples which are 5 years old. As is the case i is a stick that is just starting to show sings of budding.

I love the fruit off this tree.  I cover them up with bags and let them go really soft on the tree.  This would have to be one of my favourite fruits.  I have found them to be very difficult to transplant though, even in their dormant stage as  I have killed 2 this way.

What's there not to like about a Fuyu. Even kids like them!

I think it may be a bit to harsh for them here though.

Fruited 1st season in (was an advanced plant ) They got really sunburnt though.

In the Biolytix zone.

Nov 2010: still struggling with this one. Flowerd well and aborted all the fruit. I think it hates it here :(

Feb 2011: The hottest summer ever - and the tree a matter of weeks away from dying... :(

Pretty tree. Fruit quality is good. Had 2 fruits in 2015, 35 in 2016, 80 in 2017 and about 160 in 2018. I always thin the fruit by about 50% to improve fruit size and avoid branches snapping under the weight. Also I prune when dormant each winter to avoid too many long straggly branches - consult a reference. Grows reasonably fast. I find it is susceptible to Qld fruit fly so I bag the fruit in organza bags. Definitely recommend though for Sydney climate. (I tried growing one once in Perth, but the salty bore water quickly killed that one - needs decent water).

Fruits from beginning April till mid May, much the same every year.

Jenny1's Edible Fruits

I love the fruit and the family does too. As a kid we had the astringent variety (far too furry to eat and I hated it) Now we have the non-astringent variety & they are just beautiful.....just like apples but much smoother & sweeter. Healthwise, they r suppose to be very high in anti-oxidents.  And they look soooo good - plump, shiny and I intend to espalier my plant along a fence. I was told Fuyu is one of the better variety to grow esp in the cool climate of Warburton Victoria. Another way to eat it is to wait till they r really ripe and spoon it over ice cream (like a thick sauce). Persimmon also keep very well, as long as 3-4 weeks from date of purchase (if u can restrain from them too quickly!)

I'm hoping that the fruit of this tree will be OK, and that in its current location it will allow the winter sun to reach the house, and block out the summer sun. The garden is quite skinny (about 50cm) but I'm hoping that with the soil improvements and hand watering it will be sufficient.

Many of the leaves are getting burnt by WA sun. I'm hoping that as all the plants get bigger they will protect each other.

Remaining leaves removed June 2011. The plant appears healthy and strong despite the previous brutal summer.

May 2012 - I'm a little worried about this plant. The leaves have all fallen off now, and the edges went brown (rather than the leaves changing colour). I'm concerned it might be sick.

I have tried this once as well and had the same problem as yours. The leaves get burnt in summer and the plant does not thrive. It ended as mulch for the garden.

Have recently just put the persimmon in the ground on a slight slope in dappled shade. It flowered and has 4 fruit growing already. The persimmon is a very pretty ornamental tree so will be interesting to see how this one grows up.

As we live in termite country having the dreaded mastoterme which is the largest and most ferrocious termite in Australia I have had to do something to protect my investment. I dig very large holes in the soft Pindan and coat the holes with Termidour.

I love the delicious fruit without worry of astringency. The tree is also attractive, especially in Autumn with the bright orange fruit and the leaves changing colour (is deciduous).  Good to plant where you want some Summer shade and Winter sun. 

Planted early '10.

Update late April,2012: First crop, no bird or bug problem so allowed fruit to fully ripen on tree. Colour was so intensely orange, almost red - flavour just beautiful, and oh so sweet!(Eaten semi-crisp) Fruit large, only 2.  Hopefully much bigger crop next year, (excessive rain during flowering this year - lucky to have gotten any).

My mum gave me this persimmon tree for my birthday but it's still in its pot. Now that we've had beautiful rainy week I'm happy that the soil is nicely soaked through and that the manure and blood and bone have been well incorporated, so we're ready to plant and mulch before spring.

The tree was fruiting when it was given to me, and these were the most exquisite persimmons I have ever eaten. We're hoping that the tree will fruit again next autumn, which is when we are expecting our first baby.

One of my favourite everyday fruits. Love crunching on the non-astrigent varienties. All year this tree has been a long twig so I look forward to spring growth. Otherswise it may be dead and I don't know it. Maybe because I didn't water it.

I have the same problem with my persimmon, it is alive but looks like a stick with a few small leaves. It took longer than everything else to wake up in spring. It isn't lack of water! Maybe it is Brisbane conditions?
