Persimmons Trees in South Florida
« on: November 08, 2020, 05:46:33 PM »
Hello, everyone.

Looking for information on growing persimmons in coastal South Florida. Where to buy? Which thrive best in our area? If they can be grown in a container.

Thanks for any help.

I imagine they do quite well.
The part of Kyushuu I was in two summers ago was quite hot and humid, but persimmons did great there.

I wouldn't grow persimmon in a container.

I’m glad they’ll do well here, but I have very limited space. I was really hoping I could container grow it. Bummer.

Thanks for the info.
