persimmon

If i want to grow persimmons in Sydney, do I need to buy 1 female tree and 1 male tree to encourage pollination? The persimmon plant that I buy from Daley,will it have both female and male flowers on the same plant?

I think you will find that the Fuyu variety that Daley's sell is self-pollinating.

When persimmon varieties are described as bearing seedless fruit it means that they dont always need a pollenator. If there is a pollenater they may have some more fruit and they will have seeds. You could contact daleys for the details about the different cultivars that they grow. Just click on contact on above left.

Michael, did your tree lose leaves over the winter? My persimmon trees currently are in pots and have no leaves at all.

Just the usual lots of organic matter and thick mulch. Be carful of thr roots, they are very brittle. I carfully tease out the tap root and plant it as deep as I can. Also plant were it is easy to net them, if you have a lot of birds or possums

Hi Thithi. Pesimmons are deciduous, so lose their leaves in winter.

Thanks Don. The picture that posted by Michael must not been taken in august then. I thought if the weather not too cold, maybe it would not shed its leaves!?
Anyway one of my persimmon already has new leaves out atm, the other has no sign of leaves causes me a bit worry that it may be dead..

Hi Thithi
My picture was taken in April this year.Persimmon will loose all their leaves in winter but new leaves should be appearing now in spring.My tree is not big but gives me plenty of fruits. Two problems I have with them are fruit flies and bats.Netting and picking them earlier is my current solution.

I just wanted to vent that after waiting many months for my fuyu to ripen all but 10 fruits of 70 fruits are left.I thought it was bats and covered it with nets but I can see dirt mounds and holes in the net so I suspect rats.

More than likely. They eat the fruit and seeds.

I don't think rats will consume that much in one raid. How impenetrable was the netting ? Any openings in the bottom? A flock of parrots can eat a lot as can 2or 3 possums. PS what are dirt mounds ? Do you mean feces? If it is feces then should be easy to identify culprits from the poo.

I double net the tree and individually wrap each remaining fruit with organza bags but still everything got eaten last night.Not even one fruit is left .The nets were torn with holes in it n so were the organza bags.
