New York: Megan Karlen's Persimmon

"This tree was the one that we had in a high rise on a window sill overlooking Ground Zero. Well, it's now in the Berkshires :) We planted it last fall, we wrapped it with hay and burlap to brace itself against the snow, we unwrapped it this spring and before we knew it it was filling out with amazing leaves from the ground up.
You can see the top of the persimmon as a stick with no leaves. This is how tall it grew before we planted it. Now the leaves are sprouting from the soil level up and it's filling out beautifully!"
