Planted location #37 (clay loam). Growing very strongly. Required some staking as trunk was not strong enough to support canopy. Pruning and staking has rectified this.

Peel a hard but nearly ripe Nightingale persimmon and dry it over an air vent for around ten days - truly dios pyros, an experience to die for!

I was a bit concerned as this is by far the most expensive tree I bought and my favourite fruit- no signs of life for 2 months. Now the tiniest green bud tips have appeared. Watered very infrequently while dormant.

Kids love fruit leathers made in a food dryer, made out of pureed persimmon mixed with yoghurt and they also love persimmon blended into a pancake mixture.

The astringent avraieties live up to the name "Dios pyros" (as above) but the NA (non astringent) are not nearly as good. Nightingale is excellent.Also try Mexican persimmon (Diospyros dignya) and the german medlar which also reward the same patience
