High quality persimmon scion wood available for grafting. You must have a compatible persimmon rootstock to graft onto. THIS IS NOT A TREE, THIS IS SCION WOOD ONLY. Persimmon grafting is fairly easy. You must graft using dormant scion wood (what we will ship you and you hold in your fridge until ready to graft) onto rootstock which is actively budding or leafing out. That is the only major difference between grafting persimmon vs apple or pear. Whip and tongue grafting works fine.
