  • Persimmon literature

    Hi all - Can anyone recommend an authoritative or deep-dive literature for growing Asian persimmons/varietal information? All I can muster are the canned summaries from retail sites, or very brief (and sometimes inconsistent) summaries in books with broader subject matter. I’m particularly interested in detailed varietal info as I’m trying to decide what to plant, and I’d like to nerd out a bit. Any suggestions for reading material? Thanks a bunch!

    You can read something from the "old", for example, here https://archive.org/details/cultureo...ge/n1/mode/2up

    have you looked at JFE ?, they have the most extensive list of persimmons that I know with pictures and some details.
