Increasing Utility of Native Persimmons by Bark Grafting

  • Zoom


This online presentation will describe grafting of native stands of persimmons (Diospyros virginiana) with known and improved varieties with commercial value. The Persimmon is a North American native tree found in patches scattered by wildlife on landowners’ properties. They are rarely utilized because wild persimmons tend to produce low quality fruits and all trees do not bear. Therefore, by grafting, growers can increase production of locally grown persimmons to supply potential markets.
