Very nice color Todd, specially the leaves of your Ginkgį»¨. Does your Persimon need a male tree to have fruits?

Hi Xuan,
Thank you. No, this female persimmon flowers and fruits without a male nearby. I suspect that the fruits do not have viable seeds, although I'm not sure. I need to ask Julian Adams about this since he raised the tree. This is my first year with this tree and I like how it grows. They do need plenty of water during the growing season.
