Persimmon Diospyros virginiana
Persimmon is a deciduous tree that is native to the Eastern and Midwest regions of the US. While this fruit tree is usually dioecious, meaning it requires a male and female tree to fruit, some trees have 'perfect flowers' and are able to self pollinate. To identify male and female persimmon trees, the male produces flower clusters while the female will produce single flowers in spring.
The small persimmon fruit matures in fall and can hang onto the tree well into winter, which is why this fruiting tree is a favorite with hunters in establishing food plots for deer and turkey. However, the fruit is also used to make jelly, syrup and pies.
Persimmon tree leaves make excellent teas. Being part of the ebony family, the wood is hard and often used in making golf club heads, shoe molds and billiard or pool cue sticks.
This tree is also grown as an ornamental tree for parks and large lawn areas.
Persimmon trees are grown and ship in one quart size pots.
Cannot ship to CA or AZ addresses.
