They grow so readily from seed that I've never even thought about it, but now that you have raised the possibility I will give it a go. Semi-hardwood cuttings taken now, from the outside of the bushes, about the size of a pencil, stuck in full shade with 50% of each leaf removed. Ask again in six weeks time and let us know how your own efforts go.

That rain starting about three weeks ago brought on a lot of new growth which has hardened up nicely now. I think it will work. I can also try some really sweet persimmons from the same neighbours' garden but which I don't think will work. Perhaps a few four node cuttings of each as well.

As to the question of fruiting - it is one of the surest ways to get fruit exactly like the parent plant, and much sooner than a seedling would produce.
