This is normal Japanese persimmon behavior (it will probably do it every
year, not just the first one). It may not seem as though there is much
left, but when it starts to turn orange you may find there are more than you
realized. It's unusual for a one-year old persimmon to bear fruit (3-4 yrs+
is more like it), so if you get any fruit at all this year you'll be ahead
of the game. And just wait a few years--you'll be awash in fruit.
