Persimmon Fruit Trees

Asked July 8, 2018, 8:32 AM EDT

Do Persimmon fruits need to be thinned when small like apples and pears? I have a 4 year old tree that produced a couple of fruits last year but is covered with small fruit this year and can't find any advice as to whether I need to thin the fruit or if the tree will take care of it by dropping fruit as the season goes on.

Yes, thin fruits so that there is about a 6-inch space between fruits. jt
