Our Garden Planner can produce a personalised calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.
Stake trees for the first 3-4 years.
Harvesting depends on variety, non astringent persimmons can be eaten while still firm but astringent varieties need to be alowed to ripen until soft.
Cover trees with netting to prevent birds from destroying the fruit.
