WTB Texas persimmon seedlings or seeds
« on: August 21, 2020, 05:55:19 PM »
Anyone out there have this available? Got some seeds last year but I think they got too hot in my mailbox. Seeds looked good but after stratification planted them and didn't get any sprouts. Would like another go at these guys.

Thanks!

Derek, I had been getting these from a friend in Central Texas. Not this year though. These are slow growing and maturing small trees. I have a male that has been flowering for several years, but until last year no female mature enough. Last spring another set a few flowers, but didn't hold them. It is a female, so I might get some fruit this coming spring. I'll send out seeds if I get any. D

Anyone harvest any of these this season? Quicker they get going the faster I'll get fruit!

I have trees if anyone is still looking. 1 gallons are $9.99. I can only send trees within the US.
*** Update, I misread the initial post. I thought we were talking about Diospyros Viginiana for some reason. I also have Diospyros Texana established well in 1 gallons, but no seed.
