What are the fastest growing persimmon varieties if any. Want to put more in, but do not want fence circles all over the place keeping deer off of them. I have fuyu types now and they are pretty slow growers. Are there any I could grow in a pot and they would be out of deer range in a season or two? Thanks. (astringent or not)
An upright grower would be best for you. I found that steiermark and Korea, varieties that Cliff England used to sell, grew very fast. Both are astringent varieties and it looks like I will taste them for the first time this year. I bought them from Cliff maybe 3 years ago and they are already probably over 25 feet high.
