DEER MAGNET PERSIMMON
This grafted female persimmons tree is from Jerry Lehman’s collection and originating in Central Indiana. Deer Magnet was chosen because of its ability to hold persimmons tree very late in the year. This tree typically does not begin dropping until around December 1st as the freezing weather of winter moves in. Deer Magnet produces a sweet 1 ½” persimmons that ripens on the tree. This persimmons tree is great for some late season hunting and begins producing in as little at 3 years.
All grafted persimmons trees will be sold between 2′ – 3″ ($32.00) and 3′ – 5′ ($42.00). These trees are grafted, which is defined as using plant tissue from the original tree and attaching it to the new roots. This essentially gives you an identical tree of the one you see in the picture and description.
POLLINATION FOR DEER MAGNET PERSIMMON
Deer Magnet persimmon tree is self fruitful and will produce seedless fruit without pollination through parthenocarpy (the development of a fruit without prior fertilization). If you’re wishing to have seeded fruit, I would recommend planting at least 3 of our cold hardy, highly vigorous seedlings in your Persimmons orchard.
Persimmons will do best when planted in well drained fertile loam soil with a pH of 6 to 7. However they are very adaptable to many soil types and conditions. Persimmons will tolerate even being planted in heavy soils such as clay and a pH as low 5.5.
If you have not completed a soil test and improved your soil. I would recommend mixing 1/2 to 1 ounce of 0-20-20 granular fertilizer in your soil at the time of planting. The first number tells you percentage of nitrogen contained in the fertilizer. Nitrogen applied directly to the roots of the tree will cause death to your tree, make sure the first number is zero. Nitrogen is very mobile in the soil. You can apply a small amount of Nitrogen the following year as needed. The 2nd and 3rd numbers are Phosphorus and Potassium. Apply these two nutrients at or well before the time of planting, because they are basically immobile in the soil, they will need mixed in through the soil. We recommend completing a soil test and making amendments for best results.
Persimmon trees grow a very extensive root system therefore once established they are very drought tolerant. Persimmon trees are grafted onto rootstock that is grown from seed derived from Full draw persimmons. The trees grafted to this rootstock will give you a mature height of 30′ to 60′. A recommended tree spacing of 25′ to 30′ on grafted persimmon trees. Plant in a location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight for optimal growth and fruit production. Cages of at least 5’ are highly recommended to ensure your deer eat your persimmons in a few years and not your trees this year!
