    The roots were amazing but the tree itself is the size of a pencil. I was told it would delivered 4 days ago and it didn’t arrive until tonight. Looking forward to seeing how fast it grows

    I was blown away with the root structure of these guys. Absolute unit. Most challenging thing was trying to figure out how to get all those roots back in the ground. The tree itself was small, but I have no doubt that with the root systems on these guys, they’ll take off like a rocket when they wake up from dormancy.

    Arrived two days after shipping notice. They were the size I was expecting, roots were all moist when I opened the package two days after arrival. Soaked them in water for two hours and planted them.

    This particular tree never showed any signs of life after we planted it (day we received it). All the other things we purchased have done well, so I am happy about that, but our persimmon never woke up from its winter slumber….
