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 ...

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.

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.
