Q: Questions About Kiwi and Persimmon.

Nov 19, 2009 -

A PVFS Customer Email - Staff answer.


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.
