Persimmon (Diospyros kaki) in Poland?

(1/4) > >>

Janpol:
Hi
I planted this tree in March this spring. It is cultivar "Muscat". It has around two meters height. Since May it has begun to grow and even bloomed. It grew weakly. It didn't fruit due to cold May. Now it hasn't got any leaves, but some twigs is withering away. It is wintering. Krakow is situated on 6b zone. Persimmon can withstand frosts. How cover  it for winter? Maybe it cope uncovered? How care about it?

All the fruit:
I have never seen D. kaki in 6b and even the trees i saw in 7a did not look too good.
Why dont you get some tasty D. lotus variety? Tens of thousands of cherry sized persimmons per ature tree and in my experience much hardier than D. kaki.

SeaWalnut:
If its potted you can keep it in a garage or something.

shiro:
Among the most resistant D. Kaki are:

Diospyros Virginiana X Kaki Kassandra ( -26C )

Diospyros Kaki Rojo Brillante x D.Lotus

Diospyros virginiana x Diospyros kaki russian beauty ( Rosseyanka )

Diospyros virginiana x Diospyros kaki russian red

Diospyros virginiana x Diospyros kaki super rosijanka

If you have to plant D.Kaki then it is the ones that it would be best to choose.

also the name muscat is a name whose origin is confused.
Here is a website that explains the possible errors of calling

Anolis:
As others have said, you may be better off with a more cold hardy variety. Your best bet for keeping this tree alive would likely be moving it against a south facing wall, the more thermal mass the better. A more labor intensive method would be to place one or two 55 gallon barrels around your tree and fill them with water (portable thermal mass), then throw a tarp over it overnight when the temperatures fall. For extra protection, wrap the tree in old fashioned (heat producing) Christmas lights before covering it with the tarp to trap maximum heat.
