Has anyone had success in gorwing persimmons in Northern Arizona? We are near Sedona on Oak Creek. It gets down to 12 degrees F in winter on our ranch and up to 108 in summer.
I'd love to have one of these, but am reluctant to try if it's like a cranberry or blueberry and cannot handle the intense heat. Any help here? Thanks-

I have an Asian persimmon, this year was the best producing year so far. I believe I'm in zone 8-9. More fruit than I can give away so I'm slicing the crisp fruit and drying, it's delicious dried ! Does anyone have tips on growing from seed ? I have many friends who would like to get a start from my wonderful tree.

I have a five year old American Persimmon thriving in Albuquerque. N.M. (Our temps are a little lower than yours but do go to 100 degrees). I gotta warn you though---it took me four tries to get the tree to "take." Bare root did NOT work. I finally got a potpacked one from Stark Bros. which I canned up in a five gallon pot and grew for a year in the pot before I transplanted it to a full sun location. The tree was very small when it arrived from Stark so the fact that it has a long taproot was not a problem in its interim pot.

The tree has not yet produced persimmons though it is supposed to be a variety which is self-fertile. sk
