I am very ineterested in buying a couple Persimmon - Fuyu-Jiro (Standard) trees and I have a few questions. Do these type of trees need pollination? Can they grow well in Southern CA? We live in San Diego County, 2 miles away from the ocean. Also, I would like to learn about Kiwi. the same questions. Thank you!
The Fuyu-Jiro Persimmon does not need a pollinator. They grow in USDA zones 7-9 as long as you get 200 hours of chill time for them, they should do fine.
Also, the Kiwi doesn’t need a pollinator, both male and female flowers are on the same vine. I’ve attached your local Master Gardener’s Extension office, they may have better information particular to your area than I have available to me.
Take a Look at the Master Gardeners National Website here.
Hope this helps.
