Well for the past couple years I have been getting only a few persimmons off my tree. I thought that maybe it was due to the fact that it was a young tree and was still developing since I only put it in the ground in 2007. Actually the tree was labeled as a Fuyu persimmon which I would have rather had but when the fruit developed the first year it was obviously not Fuyu.
Anyhow, this year I got rather excited early in the season because I noticed that there were tons and tons of female blooms on the tree. Sadly though they were all on the ground within a week. I did some researching on the interwebs and have found out that there are male and female trees and without having both in your yard you are pretty lucky to get one fruit let alone three fruits which i got last year.
So, my question is, where would I find a MALE Hachiya persimmon? I have gone and done my google searches but come up with little info regarding buying a male tree. None that I have come across have mentioned anything about male and female trees.
Anyone here have some experience with this?
