American persimmons time

Just harvested these American persimmons today from my 7 varieties multi grafted tree. They are real sweet and tasty.

Tony, they look delicious.

I sat today from my deck and decided which ornamental trees will get the chainsaw and become replaced with persimmon trees.

H-118, Prok, 100-46, and H63A will be gorgeous with excellent fruits. Good luck Dax.

Very light crop on all my persimmons this year. All are finished except Keener, which still has most of its crop hanging on.
Very early this year… usually, NC-10 is my earliest ripening variety and would just be dropping first ripe fruits around 10-15 Sept, but I’ve been eating persimmons for nearly a month, and they’re done now…

Hi Tony, which variety are the really large ones? I planted a Prok this year after reading about its good qualities.

Andrew,

100-46 is the largest one from Jerry Lehman’s collection. Prok and H-118 are almost the same large size but H-118 is a little jucier than Prok. All these three are at the top of the American persimmons.

Still pulping
As it comes out of the mill ,there is the clean buttery pulp,
Which we are freezing,
The so called wast has some fibers and black flecks in it, not as visually appealing ,but good. Makeing fruit leather out of it.
Despite being the sweetest native american fruit,the dried fruit leather is not as sweet as I would have expected…with added sugar it is delightful
