Re: persimmion seeds

I'll be watching this thread. I tried 3yrs ago to start persimmon from seeds bought from someone on this board. Finally got 5 to grow out of about 25 seeds. 2 of those seedlings died over this winter so after 3 yrs I have 3 very small seedlings about 1' tall. Good luck hope you have better luck than I did.

Never grew them, but I'm told that scratching them up with sandpaper and freezing them is key.

Re: persimmion seeds

Would you freeze them or put them in a potting soil and in a zip lock bag and store them over the winter in the crisper of the refrigerator? I put in over 100 hickory nuts in the crisper this way and so far over 60% have sprouts on them. I picked 8 more out of the zip bag tonite and will put them in tomorrow. I don't know if they are shag bark or shell bark but the ones I ate last winter were very good
