  • Late summer snack

    My figs slowed down, so pretty much picking and popping and my wife was lucky at least a couple made it to the house. My Adratic JH is living up to the hype this year as I had my doubts last year. Matsumoto kaki is wonderful.

          Those look great! How do those persimmons compare to other varieties? I like the crunchy varieties, thinking of getting a giant fuyu.

            Thanks for complements on the pics, I been trying to record my figs better this year, mostly just quick gardens snaps.

            The Matsumoto is a Crunchy Non-astringent The full name is Matsumoto Wase Fuyu. I believe It's a sport of Fuyu that is earlier Wase means early and seemingly a little larger than Fuyu. I find it more cold hardy and nurseries normally list it as such. It seems. I have read it'd grown commercially and sold as Fuyu, but it's not the original Fuyu to me earlier and more hardy is better, Jiro is also called Fuyu is seems by Left coast nurseries. Most Non-astringent taste very similar to me if at the same stage of ripeness

              Nice pics. My JH must be where yours were last year, sort of dry and not making it. I still have a few that I am hopeful for, they look to be swelling nicely.
              Do you have your persimmons in ground or pot?

                Yes last year my JH was either dryish or SWD slime and really small and a lot aborted so don't give up on them.

                My persimmon are all in ground except a couple I got bare root last spring with minimal root that I wanted to baby in a pot where I could water for a year and hopefully develop some base roots.
