Customer Comments on Persimmon - Fuyu (NA)
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
