American Persimmon

from 10.00

Diospyros Virginiana
American Persimmon is not the Persimmon most people are used to that you buy in the store…  Those are Asian Persimmons, which are larger, but the flavor is much weaker… A true American Persimmon is an absolutely stunning flavor that is rich, deep, sweet and complex.  

Perhaps the most important aspect to this fruit is that it ripens around Thanksgiving!  In cold years, the trees are known to hold their fruit deep into the winter!  Imagine delicious, sweet, fresh fruit from your own trees in January!  

Incredibly hardy tree, easily adapts to all situations, can tolerate a lot of pressure from weeds and browse, drought and flood tolerant, and a beautiful tree… Incredibly worthwhile.  There are both males and females (unknown when 1st and 2nd year seedlings), so you need at least a few trees to be guaranteed fruit.  We offer a bundle of 4 well established 2nd year plants to get you going...

Size:
Can be between 30’ and 80’ tall depending on site.  Can be pruned or left alone.  Harvest of fruit is done by shaking tree, so it being tall doesn’t hinder harvest.

Site Preference:
Prefers full sun but can stand a wide range of environments.

Hardiness:
Zone 5
