Suggestions for non-astringent persimmons for New England, zone 6

12 years ago


Once I've found out that my zone is upgraded from zone 5 to zone 6, I like to try growing persimmons. I've read many posts here about the trees. I still think I need some suggestions to find the persimmon trees that fit the criteria I am looking for:

Non-astringent - I like sweet, crunchy fruit. I'd love to eat persimmon that is not so soft. It seems all astringet type, you have to wait until it's fully ripe and soft.

Will survive zone 6 without protection: It seems the astrigent type is hardier but I look for the non-astringent that would survive zone 6.

I appreciate your advice.
