Video Series Highlights Persimmon Grafting

North Central Region SARE reports that Missouri grower Matt Renkoski has been testing and demonstrating grafting of large-diameter persimmon native seedlings (.5 to 4.0-inch diameter) using a bark-grafting technique. By grafting, growers can increase the production of locally grown persimmons to supply potential markets. Renkoski recorded his process for grafting in a series of videos that are available online.
