Planting persimmons close together vs grafting

15 years ago


I'm running out of space to plant fruit trees (at least until they start producing and DH is willing to give up more lawn). I've decide to forgo getting a plum b/c i need something I'm not going to be fighting the bugs over.

I'm planning on getting a Fuyu persimmon. But after researching persimmons I'm dying to grow chocolate or NISHIMURA WASE/ coffee cake or saijo persimmon as well! Can I plant them very close together like in backyard orchard culture? Or am I better off learning to graft and grafting on different cultivars?

I've also read conflicting info on chocolate persimmons- are they PVNA or PVA? Can they be eaten when the are firm after being pollinated?
