Fuyu Persimons

    5 responses

Dee starts with ...
Hi! I just bought a dwarfed fuyu persimon with a lot of bud and flowers on it.
- when do I have to plant it in the yard? I live in zone 7.
- how often do I need to water it?
- since it's flowering, will the flowers will drop if I remove it from the pot? (plant is over 5 feet height)
- I don't mean to change the subject but I also have a potted mango plant. it's less than a year old, it looks death right now, all the leaves are browned and dropping
Please help!!!!
Thank in advance
Dee

Hi Dee,

According to this webpage
http://www.avant-gardening.com/zone.htm
Zone 7
Average dates the last frost - 30 March to 30 April
Average dates the first frost - 30 September to 30 October

I think your mango tree (tropical fruit tree) you brought out of the green house while it is still a bit frosty and if I was you I would bring it back to the green house and wait for the weather gets a bit warmer then you bring it out for a couple of hours a day and increase the number of hours everyday for a week until the tree is getting used to the weather before permanently being outside and see if it will survive. Good luck.

Now regarding to your fuju persimmon tree this webpage has useful information on cultivation of this fruit tree that you can rely on.

http://www.crfg.org/pubs/ff/persimmon.html

BTW, according to what you said in your Edible page, there are lots of pine trees/ pine needles on your land. It means your soil is very acidic (PH around 5 to 6) so you may have to increase the PH by adding lime or dolomite to the soil before planting the persimmon tree but I would test the soil first and see how acidic the soil is before adding lime.

Your soil may be best to grow bluberry or acid loving plants.

All the best.

Wahhh!! My Fuyu persimmon has died after 2yrs of constant struggling, despite having the best spot in the orchard and my TLC.
Obviously not a tree for Geraldton-like conditions...? Ah well, U win some and u loose some..

It's sad to see a tree go, you rub off a bit of bark and it's just brown nothingness underneath. I gave a young soursop tree a quiet cremation last weekend. Fortunately a named variety (Cuban Fibreless) lives on. Persimmons do surprisingly well here in the subtropics, I always imagined them as a cold climate fruit. A lovely Hachiya tree arrived in magnificent condition from Daleys recently. Does anyone know if it is ok to plant when in full leaf or should I wait until winter dormancy sets in?

I second that Nick! lol... they don't appreciate being dessicated. I also found mine to be a bit touchy with fertilisers?
Maybe it was just my sand/salt - but I had a lot problems with chlorosis and leaf margin burning? This new spring growth came out ok - then I renovated the mulches, clayed and fed all the trees (rooster booster) in the orchard - and this one just finally dropped dead.
I should dig it up and check out the roots b4 time passes, they might tell a story..?
