  • Planting advice and requirements :
    Diospyros vera is able to grow in a wide range of soils but all soils need to be free draining.
    The tree is propagated by seeds.
  • Seed treatments :
    12 hours of soaking in water accelerates the germination process.

    The seeds of Diospyros species have a short viability and so should be sown as soon as possible. The flesh surrounding the seeds contains germination inhibitors so it should be removed.
