I'd like to have these trees on my property, but since they have a sensitive tap root, I figure it's a better idea to plant from seed.

If I order today, I can get ~2 months in the fridge. Most trees seem to want 3 months (at least according to the literature; I don't have a lot of personal experience)

I imagine most farms prefer to just put the seed in the ground. Somebody must supply them.

Anyone recommend a supplier of seeds I can just put in the ground?

Thanks
Miles

Oikos was selling persimmon seeds which they kept carefully cool and moist until shipping… depending on when you received them they could be ready for stratification (like if you got them in the spring) however they are not selling them right now. I recommend keeping an eye on their site for if/when they offer them again.
