American Persimmon Tree

· NATIVE fruit tree with a long history of feeding early Americans


· Not only is the fruit valuable, the wood is treasured by woodworkers


· Great fruit producer since the tree sets buds well after chance of spring frost


· Fruit is harvested very late – generally after the first frost. This softens the fruit and sweetens the fruit


· Persimmon trees require full sun planted in well-draining soil


· 16’ H x 12’ W


· Prune to form branching to support fruit; two trees required for cross pollination - male and female
