I want to know what your experiences are with bees of all kinds and persimmon trees. I've got young persimmons that haven't flowered yet and I'm curious if I should plant more for bee forage. I hear so many conflicting things that I wanted to hear people's experiences. Please let me know if they're Asian or American persimmons. I have planted both but am leaning towards American for the future because of its durability
