Evil, depending on the size of the tree roja brillianti can be a large fruit. I have about 12 tree's growing.Here is a small tree.

Yes , I think it is a great idea, if you have maybe  space I would plant another variety maybe Rojo Brillante
I already have Rojo Brillante. I will buy Hana Fuyu and Saijo soon... I loce to get cofee cake variety too but i can't find it in Europe.  :)

Why not go with black sapote instead ?.
Hi! I already have one black sapote...  ;)

Wonderful
Did you grow it from seed or bought it from a nursery ?.
Hello again! This one i bought from online nursery the var. bernicker, but i can bought grafted trees from unknown variety on my local market. I bought the rojo brillante persimmon tree on my local market too.  ;D

Mine from seed.

I wish if these types are available at the local nursery.

Good luck
Moh'd

Thanks for picture.

We do get lots of trees from orvifrusa and they do have roja brillianti, so I'll contact them to get the contact number of their distributor in the UAE.

I do grow about between 20 and 30 tree's and about a dozen are R/B"s.
Giombo is actually better tasting. Sayo is about the same.

I went today to see if the local nurseries got any lychee trees. Found some from Thailand for $100 not worth it. i asked him if he got local lychee trees which cost around $12 but they were out of stock.

However, I found this.....

I don't know if my fuji apple got enough chilling hours during the shipping. It seems my tree is holding some fruit but i might cut them because it is still too young.

my vanilla persimmon is growing nicely. I hope they don't die in the summer or get nuked by the summer heat  :-X.

i planted roja brillianti about two feet away from Vanilla persimmon. both of them are about 12-14 feet away from my neem tree, which should protect them from the summer sunlight. I'm probably going to add some shading cloth in May.

Hopefully to get some fruit next year, fingers crossed  :(.

Hi Luak

I'm having a hard time finding the rojo brilliante  or vanilla persimmon here in California. Do you have any leads , or would you be willing to part with budwood when the trees go dormant?

This fruit can be eatean both mature and immature....its pulp is almost brown, sweet even if hard (not mature). In Italy is sometimes mistaken with "Cioccolatino", that is similar but smaller and with more seeds.
