About American Persimmon...



Information This product has shipping restrictions for California. (More)


The American Persimmon tree is capable of growing up to 60' tall, often developing a symmetrical, rounded crown. The American Persimmon tree will need a pollinator as the trees are considered either male or female. The American Persimmon produces a large crop of edible fruit but also produces valuable timber and is great for bees and therefore for honey production. In the fall when fully ripe, the fruit of the American Persimmon tree has a soft smooth, jelly-like texture and a honey-like sweetness. In addition to its fruit-bearing potential, the American Persimmon can make an attractive mid-size yard tree. The large drooping leaves give it a soft look, and the dark checkered bark of mature trees provides winter interest. Native Americans loved them, and they are a popular food for wild turkey, mockingbirds, deer, raccoons, foxes, squirrels, and other wildlife. A grouping of several trees can make a good wildlife planting. The tree is tough and adaptable, grows rapidly, and its deep tap root gives it good drought resistance. It can survive in shade, but grows and fruits best in sun. Young trees planted in good soil and a sunny location can begin fruiting in about 6-8 years.

Grows in zones: 5 - 9
