Greetings from Europe.
Bumped into your forum thru Googling on curling leaves of persimmon trees. Impressed by the professional response and cordial atmosphere.
I bought yesterday a persimmon tree (Tipo variety) with three fruits hanging already.
I used one layer of clay pellets at the pit bottom before planting the tree and filling in with the Mediterranean-type soil as advised by shop assistant.
There are quite a few curly leaves. I suppose they will return to normal shape without special treatment.
Very pleased with the tree. Hope the tree will keep producing fruits from this year on.
