The fruit load must have been massive.
It's my understanding that Persimmon wood is incredibly hard.
It used to be used for Golf Clubs in the old day.

ďAs God is my witness, he is broken in half!Ē
Those pictures look like they are from a crime scene. All you need is an outline. I, too, had a Fuyu persimmon tree that broke in half, but it was high wind that caused it and not fruit load.  It never recovered so I replaced it with another tree that refuses to grow. Every year it produces ~5-6 fruit but never grows larger than 4-5 feet. Iíve tried stripping the fruit, and it still wonít grow. Honestly, I donít know why I put up with it.

I think the weather is too hot in our area.  I have some trees and they do fruit but they always look stressed when the weather is really warm.  I think they need to be in a more protected area of the yard or closer to the coast.

Brad, how hot does it normally get in Poway?  My mom has an old Fuyu tree in Sacramento and it produces a bumper crop every year.  She regularly gets temps in the 100's during summer.

SHV, did your replant your persimmon in the same spot as your old tree?  I've heard fruit trees suffer from replant syndrome because of the dying roots of the old trees, so it's advised to not plant related trees in the same spot.  Old vineyards and orchards will replace the soil when they replant new trees.  I planted a small bareroot coffee cake persimmon in Fallbrook and it set over 20 fruits in its second year.

Wow Kaz, sorry to see your tree bow out like that and yes, persimmon wood is supposed to be hard but they do best in clay type soil. There are others that do fine in other soil type but all the big hardy fruiters I've seen are on clay type soil with at least 1/2 clay. Persimmons have been hanging on here in my ancient sand dune soil. My Hachiya has been breaking branches every year for last two years no matter if I thin still will break. So, could be tree under stress from not enough water or because down deep soil moisture is lacking.
Either way it sucks can't seem to make my trees happy in sandy soils even with tons of organic material added for years and years. Bye bye Hoshigaki which my wife was getting good at :'( :o

No, I planted it in a different part of the property.  An acerola cherry took over the old fuyu tree spot and grows like a weed.  I think I just got a dud fuyu tree. Maybe I will dig it up this winter when it goes dormant and see if there is a root problem.  I donít think the heat is preventing growth.  My wife had several trees in Lodi, CA and it gets ridiculously hot during summer.  They were big olí trees with branch breaking fruit loads.

I spent about 4hrs picking all the fruits from this tree yesterday, also thinned some fruits from the one next to it.

=======   FREE PERSIMMON OFFER ============     

If anyone can guess how many fruits I ended up picking after 4hrs of hard labor, you get a free medium box (USPS) of Fuyu persimmons.

You can make your guess here (only 1 guess per member), and I will give the box of free Fuyu fruits to the first 2 people that guess closest to the total amount of fruits picked.

-> You must be a forum member to participate. This contest will end on Weds, 11/8
-> Lower 48 states

Here's a clue ---> It was more than 320 fruits

 ====================================       

Hmmmmm I would guess but regardless of my guess and regardless of the amount of time till the contest ends, I see the winners posted already as per instructions unless you decide to change the above, "I will give the box of free Fuyu fruits to the first 2 people that guess closest to the total amount of fruits picked".

The first 2 posted guesses have won unless rules are revised, regardless of time... They were the first 2 and both guessed already and both were closest per the total set of first 2.

Perhaps the word "first"  should have been omitted. lol

I guess 486...
these trees are really resilient. I had one get struck in half by lightning and it still survives to this day.
