GARY SMITH - PERSIMMON , CHINABERRY SEEDS IN SEATTLE SPROUTED

Hi Hiroshi,

It looks like I was a bit premature when I sent you the first picture from my camera phone. I have twins! There are two persimmon seedlings! And one chinaberry seedling popped up, also!

I plan on making one persimmon tree trained as an espalier and the other is going to my friend's mother's home in California.

I'm not sure, but I think the chinaberry will either be planted in an estate garden or a local park or I may just keep it as a dwarf tree in a pot. If I do give it away, I will make sure the Hibaku Tree Project is credited with your name attached.
