Our Japanese persimmon, moved from our first house in Southeast Georgia, is in full flower today. There are LOTS of flowers open, but rainfall will determine how many of those flowers produce fruits (usually a good number are shed; fruits are 'expensive' to produce in terms of plant resources.)
This persimmon struggled in the first few years after being moved, gingerly extending shoots, then finally flowering.
It's produced nice crops of persimmons most years, in spite of being rather small and gangly. In Southeast Georgia, persimmons were handsome large shrubs. This one is reasonably attractive, with nice fall color, but it's hard to claim that its shape is particularly noteworthy.
The fruits are lined up here, along with homemade bread, from a post on Thanksgiving, 2008.
It's a trouble-free fruit tree for us, and well worth growing if you like persimmons!
