Meanwhile there are quite a few buds on Saijo, and lots and lots of buds on Nikita's gift. Those are both in their 4th year, from bare root planting. Both are considered parthenocarpic - bearing fruit without pollinization - so I may get something here.
The American persimmons, Yates (one year) and Prairie Star (two years) are growing nicely. Yates had some deer munching, but it looks like it was not delicious. Only one twig eaten, so far.
