  • I have not been back and also not had any contact re the trees I ordered.

    not going worry about it.

  • I never did get a response to the stock coming in. Went there 4 times trying to get a persimmon tree. Ended up buying one elsewhere. shame, I would love to support this garden more, but it's a bit out the way to keep going back and leaving empty handed.

    • Great pity Wendy. I think they might be having some issues at the moment. Four times back was above and beyond loyal.

  • Went back last week and put my name down for a persimmon tree. The lady there was trying to tell me I needed two trees for them to fruit. I tried to tell her I didn't think so but she pulled out this book and was telling me I need an astringent and non-astringent tree. I tried to explain they were actually two different varieties of persimmons - one being bitter and the other not. Fell on deaf ears so I explained I had a few trees already (although they don't seem to be doing well with all this dry weather) and just wanted another to add to the field.

    • The woman at Northey Street is NOT correct. There are few fruits which need cross-pollinating. Avocado, Blueberries, Apples, Plums, Cherries spring to mind. Figs certainly don't and nor do most of the tropical fruits (afaik). My Persimmon, variety unknown, produced seedless small fruits without benefit of bees.

      • I have a blueberry bush at my mum's place which produce heps of berries without cross pollination, it is variety dependent, and I believe the blueberries we can grow in our climate don't need cross polination.  I'm waiting to find out whether mine would fruit, it's in flower atm, which is a different variety from the one I left with my mum (mum's already finished fruiting, I might try to propagate hers so I get two crops a year :) ).  I believe the fig varieties we have here are self-pollinating since we don't have the wasps which pollinates figs in their native environment.    I think if you cross pollinate your persimmon, you MIGHT get more fruits, but there will be seeds... that's what I read about black sapote seedless varieties, which is a relative of persimmon ~ but it looks like you get plenty of fruits anyway ~ I so wanted a persimmon .. I need some land >__<

  • I went in very early Sunday  morning managed to get a Jaboticaba ( African Grape Trees),  about 5 of these left.

     they had left   1Dwarf Avocado,  which I should have purchased.

     NO Dwarf Lychee, 

     NO Dwarf Persimmon,

    there were a range of  Citrus, 

     

    I have left my name for the other trees that I want.   They were to first to tell me that I need type A & B persimmon, so that they pollinate unless I'm sure that there is of the two type within 50 klms radius and I need to purchase the opposite variety.  Other wise need one that has been double grafted ( this variety have problems with the graft getting  mildew and dying.)

     

    • I suspect the person you asked might have got it wrong... I'm not an expert, but have read widely about persimmon and avocado because these are two of the trees I really want to grow.  The type A & B for pollination for better yield is for Avocados...

      With persimmons, although there's a possibility that trees may only borne male or female flowers, I've never heard of a variety sold commercially requiring cross pollination to produce fruit, but there are astringent and non-astringent varieties, so you might want to do your own research before buying... 

      • Certain that Persimmons don't need cross-pollination like Avocados do -Avos are unique in this, I believe. My Persimmon a seedless unknown variety with very small fruit, seemed to produce fruit without the need for bees. I never saw any on the flowers although some other insect might be responsible. Anyway, if you want a Persimmon you only need to get the one plant to get good crops. Variety and culture make the difference.

        • Thanks Elaine

          It was the first I had heard about the persimmons, also was not aware about the Avos I thought with them just needed a single tree, maybe the dwarf are different.

          I'm learning every day.
