Mary-Ann, they will fruit eventually, just try to be patient and talk nice to them, get rid of that axe and relax. What Elaine says might work and also they are fussy about when to water them. I don't do anything for them now and they fruit very well. The native bees helped pollination, do you have 2 the same trees?.
Mary-Ann, give them a serious haircut come the colder weather, arm yourself with a pail of Biodynamic Paste and give them a good 'pasting'. Then see what happens.
Might take my own advice with the Saba and Rollinia as they have the next summer as a one-off reprieve.
have two trees and just about ready to dig them out - nothing in 3 years ! and do I love them !
Mmmmm! Persimmons! The fruit look very like the one I had growing for several years on an espalier. Although non-astringent, I preferred the full rich flavour of the soft fruit.
Finally picked the last of the Persimmon, they are the most delicious fruit. I have been having a couple a day and enjoying them immensely.
We bagged them but I feel that they did not need it, as the last couple picked did not have any stings and had no nets.
Wow, you've got some wonderful diverse fruit there!
I recall that variety when working in a Nursery. Bought mine at Theo's around Petrie. Honnef's I recall but never went there. They had good plants from what I heard.
The gluts sound amazing. If only ...
After looking at my old paperwork, I found the real name of this dwarf tree. I remembered it being a four letter word. It is called a jiro, or ichikikijiro. It is a large flat fruit, goes very soft and sweet if left to ripen on the tree. I purchased it many years ago from Honnef's nursery. They have been closed for quite some time. I bought many fruit trees from them. We went through the stage where no one in the family was interested in a glut of cumquats, olives, peachcots, oranges and much more, so we did away with them. Naturally I regret that now.
Are the fruit quite small and flat? I had one similar and that's what the fruit was like and I'd forgotten the variety.
