Yesterday I happened by a small plot of fruit trees I planted 10 years ago this coming spring. Several apple, persimmon, pear and plumb. I noticed one of the persimmon trees had dropped the leaves but had 5 ripe persimmons on the branches. First fruit I've seen on any of the trees I planted. I guess it will get an extra dose of fertilizer this winter. I will be interested to see how it does next year. I don't do a ton of maintenance on my trees, enough protection to keep them alive as seedlings and saplings. Very cool to finally see one produce.
