England's Orchard

Does anyone know how Cliff England’s persimmons fared the cold winter temperatures he had this year? I know some of his hybrids survived – which is exciting – and the american’s are probably mostly fine, but I’m curious if any of his asian persimmons survived the extreme cold.

I believe he lost all his Kakis.

Very badly…

He is in KY, much warmer than my zone. Most of the Asians are hardy to zone 6 and zone 7.

He experienced zone 5 temps, Redsun. I think near -20. He expected to lose all his kakis and it tested his hybrid persimmons.

Heard that. I think the coldest temp I had was about -10 degree. I think I’m closer to the coast…
