I have a "Mexican" persimmon which is said to be evergreen and still ahve
in a pot after 6 years. No fruit so far. I would plant it out if I thought
it would not freeze back. It has choclate colored fruits.

> I've recently visited the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. They have the date
plum persimmon "D. Lotus". The tree was loaded with chocolated colored
fruits, they were seedless and quite tasty. I've seen trees before here in
pa, grown at Bob Seips farm. He has more than 1 tree all trees were loaded
with marble size fruit, he has a variety named wild korean, but the fruits
had more seeds than pulp.
> Does anyone have experience growing that persimmon? I'm trying to find out
whether it's self-fertile or not.
> The tree that was planted alone produced seedless fruits, the one planted
with other mates produced seeded fruits.
