PERSIMMON CULTURAL NOTES
Persimmons are highly ornamental, hardy trees with good Autumn color and edible fruit. They grow well in both subtropical and temperate climates, preferring a deep, rich, well drained soil, but tolerating a range of well drained soils. A position protected from winds, in full sun is best.
Apply fertiliser as recommended annually in Winter. A light pruning only is required as persimmons produce fruit on current season's growth. Harvest when fruit are well developed and of characteristic colour.
