Nice photos!
We have almost exactly the same approach to caging for our favorite ruminants. It works :slight_smile:


#23

Better than anything IMO.

I just continue to build upward on them with more 4’ stakes if for example I currently have 1000 of them. Gorilla Tape for the stakes and nothin for the fence.

Thanks! It’s great walking around, right now.

Nice orange on that last one!


#26

I come to find out that the first photo of at least 50 was clear. I didn’t realize that!


#27

I have Wabash, which is reputed to have good red/purple fall color, but here, leaves are so tattered and black-spotted by that time of year, that it’s hardly notable.
I found one on a roadside in Elmore Co., AL, some years back that had terrific RED fall leaf color, but both grafts I made of it have died out. Not sure the ortet is still there.

Looking great Dax, you have quite a collection now. Can’t wait to hear taste reports few years from now :slight_smile:
I am keeping only 3 persimmons, ran out of space. This is my Gora Goverla last November

Hi Paul,

I was told Gora Goverla is the best of the Gora’s. That, GG also would be in the top 5 I think the guy said to own.

Thanks for your photo.

Yes, it should be the best fo Goras, Kosh has kind of smaller fruits and I haven’t eaten Rogers yet.
That being said, I also heard there are more strains of Goverla, so who knows :slight_smile:


#31

Somebody does lol. That was good stuff though, Paul, thanks! ha-ha

@paul @barkslip Where did you get Gora Goverla? I haven’t been able to turn up any sources yet. I’m beginning to learn you have to find some of these things via emails and phone calls rather than Google searches…


#33

Plantsmen and Plantswomen. It’s that simple.

@jcguarneri I am over in Europe and it’s not such a rarity here but you can find Goras among hobbyists in US as well, Dax is a clear example (and judging by the number of trees on his pictures he might have some extras haha). From nurserymen Cliff England might carry that variety as well.


#35

Fair enough. I’ll have to add that to my trade wish list. I do like to support nurseries that sell scion of rare varieties, but some things you can’t buy!


#36

I get two distinct fall colors from American persimmon. Either green or crispy (from frost) :slight_smile: WS8-10

Couple year old american persimmon seedling.

One of my JT-02 grafts is turning a nice yellowish orange (looks more orange in person). Just started in the last couple days.


#39

Ruby persimmon. Maybe partly soil influenced.

Thanks for that, John. I’d like to see photos of the fruit, sometime.

Thanks,

Dax
