Re: Moving a mature Persimmons - advice needed
I’ve grown them, but never moved a mature persimmon tree. They are quite brittle, which I’ll assume extends to their roots. I’ve always assumed ‘the more root – the better,’ with regard to any tree. I actually consider them a temperamental tree, as I’ve recently lost 2 of my 4 for no apparent reason, and suspect the Asians are fairly short lived.
Don’t know why you’re moving it, but they’d be the last of my fruit trees that I’d attempt to move. A fig? – bullet proof! But my suspicion is a persimmon of that age would be a very risky venture. Hopefully someone with more experience will find this, but ‘around here’ persimmons are still considered an exotic
by most folks … if they’ve even heard of one
