The only non-astringent dwarf permission I can find, because I want a tree for a small yard that will only get 10 feet tall instead of 30.

I'm growing this in a pot on a roof top at a children's museum. This variety came in a dwarf form and is never sour.

Low in salicylates, and they are not available in the stores.

I saw a jiro persimmon tree at Atlanta Botanical Garden and it was lovely.
Helen C on Apr 1, 2016
I had a small patch of great full-sun property in my front yard but didn't have the space to plant several more traditional non-self pollintating fruit trees, so this self-pollinating Persimmon seemed like a great fit for what would have otherwise been unused space.

I love persimmos and they are usually expensive at the grocery store. I'm delighted to grow my very own.

What the treatment for black spots on my persimmon tree leaves. The tree will not bear?
Hopehudson@hotmail.com H on Mar 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The IchiKiKeijiro I bought in 2014 has not gotten big enough to bloom. it replaced one I have had for many years. that tree never seemed to have any trouble with fruiting, but I must confess I don't know if it ever had blackspot. we are located in the WV panhandle so it gets pretty humid and hot here so I would assume it would be favorable for black spot. Not sure this is any help, but are you sure blackspot would keep a tree from bearing fruit? Steve

although you did not recommend me buying these trees because of my zone I did anyway and even though we had record low temperature two winters ago I had no problems with my trees! that is why I am buying even more.

Three years old?
Tree was well packaged, the disappointment is in the size of the tree. The trunk of the tree is smaller than my little finger in diameter . It has not yet shown any signs of life. 3/12/16. Maybe a bit early but my peach has already started to blossom. I would like to send a photo but there is no way to attach to this rating.

Prompt Delivery, Beautiful Tree
So far, so good! The tree selection, pricing, ordering and delivery were smooth. This is the first winter in the ground, so anticipating buds in spring.

Dwarf persimmon
I received my Ichi-Ki-Kei-Jiro persimmon tree in excellent condition, with a nice stout and healthy 'trunk'. I am still working on removing a stump where I intend to plant it, but it is keeping well. I appreiciate your growing this dwarf variety, and for the information you later provided me regarding it's rootstock. I sometimes am discouraged by the homogoneity of plants that are grown by the majhority of nurseries. Stark Brothers still has a lot of variety. Thank you!

Great service - plant arrived fast and very carefully packed. I was just afraid if it would be the right time to plant it, since we had some cold days here in Louisiana, but the plant seems to be doing OK. Thank you!
