American persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) seedling (2nd year). 美洲柿實生小苗(第2年).

Cold hardy fruit tree.  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun location.  White/green flowers in late spring to early summer.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.  Plant is either male or female so will require both to produce fruit. Better grow enough to make sure able to have both male and female plants flowering at the same time.  USDA Zones:5-9.  Mature size:30′-40′(H/W).  Propagate by seeds or air-layering.  Sweet ripe fruit can be harvested around frost time in fall.

耐寒強健的果樹.  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照處.  春末夏初時開白綠色的花.  花頗吸引蜂蝶.  植株是雌雄異株. 需要多種幾棵以保同時雄株與雌株能同時開花以授粉結果.  耐寒也耐熱.  成熟株高/寬幅30-40呎. 繁殖以種子或高壓的方式來進行.  秋天霜降前後果熟可以採收. 果實味甜.
