I’ve been a fan for a long time, ever since I’ve tried both the crunchy non-astringent and soft and gooey varieties. Growing them at home is not a cheap exercise, but it’s fun to see what you can produce. As with a lot of fruit trees, you need a lot of patience and these things take years to get going. I think we’re getting a solid 3-4 fruit a year now which is a good start. One year, the resident mouse/rat thing in the yard nibbled into a couple of the fruit when they were immature, which made me very sad at the time. I found the rat dead on top of the pond a few months ago - probably unreleated! - but at least I’ve no longer got competition for the persimmons now.
