I have waiting for some time now to put up this video. Each year, cutting down the bagged persimmons and opening the bags is like a Gardener's Christmas/ Birthday for me. I realized that I had never videod the event. Here's a little clip so everyone can share in my joy!
Sadly, I have not been able to root any cutting from my beloved Giant Fuyu tree despite my repeated attempts the past two years. I have given rationed this last harvest from my baby. Gave some to friends and family. Pureed the ripe fruit and froze them. Froze some persimmon whole for delicious natural sorbet. I need to tie us over the year before my yet to be planted new Fuyu Persimmon tree start to fruit.
Ants trying to get in on the harvest. They always know when fruits are ripe.
The box represent my final harvest of Fuyu Persimmon for 2017. I look forward to harvesting from a new Giant Fuyu Persimmon tree in my new orchard in a few years time.
