Plums, Asian Pears, and Persimmons in Portland, OR area?

13 years ago


I'd like to mail order some fruit trees for my brother who lives in Portland, OR area where the summer is dry and relatively cool, and winter/spring is very wet.

I am considering the following trees from Bay Laural Nursery:

Plum: 4-N-1 LOW CHILL PLUM COMBO 3 of these 5 varieties depending on availability: Beauty, Burgundy, Golden Nectar, Methley, Santa Rosa.

Asian Pear: 4-N-1 Asian Pear with Chojuro, Hosui, Shinseiki and 20th Century. 3 of these varieties.

Persimmon: FUYU ('JIRO')

I am considering multi-budded trees mainly because of limited gardening space, and the need for cross pollination. But I am wondering what the disadvantages would be for planting multi-budded, instead of 2 or 3 different trees.

I am also wondering if Fuyu will ripe in time for the Portland area.

Please let me know what you think about these selections. Thanks.
