I would like to try this. I have on mature tree but would like more.

What exactly did you do in the fridge? did you place them in dirt?


Do a little research on the internet to make sure I've got this right. I put the seeds in a dish surrounded by wet paper towel for maybe three months. Keep them moist. Supposedly, this "stratifies" the seed. Then, I transferred them to small pots and put them near a window until they grew to about five or six inches.

In early fall, I transferred them to the yard and protected them with chicken wire. They like as much sun as you can give them.

Good luck.

You can plant them in the fall in a furrow, mulch w/sawdust. mother nature will chill them.

This post just reminded me,that I have a gallon size freezer bag of these,that I put in the freezer last August. Do you think these would still be any good to use? I have 4 trees hanging full at my parents house,so I can get fresh ones,if I need to.

I don't know for sure, but I imagine seeds get frozen in nature and do just fine.

This is "sort of" off subject, but the fruit on my persimmon tree is HUGE this year. Must of been all the rain.
