These persimmon trees are grown from the seed that is derived from the original Full Draw persimmon tree which is cold hardy to -30° F. These are 90 chromosome cold hardy America persimmon trees that reach heights of between 30’ – 60’. They bloom from late May to early June avoiding late damaging frosts. Female persimmon trees produce annually and are relished by deer for their sweet plum like fruit that drops in early fall through winter. Seedlings will be male or female, only female persimmons trees produce fruit be sure to plant in groups of 6 to 10. When planting seedlings you will get a variety of drop times from late summer and in through fall. When planting these persimmons into optimal soil they will begin flower and producing in as little as 4 years
PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS FOR PERSIMMON TREES
Persimmons will do best when planted in moist 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. Persimmons do not do well when planted in wet soil.
If you have not 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 is the amount of nitrogen contained in the fertilizer. It is very important that the first number is 0 because nitrogen applied directly to the roots of the tree will cause death to your tree. Nitrogen is very mobile in the soil and a small amount can be applied the following year if needed. The 2nd and 3rd numbers are Phosphorus and Potassium. They are basically immobile in the soil and need to be applied at or well before the time of planting.
Persimmon trees are very drought tolerant once established, as they grow a very extensive root system. These seedling grown trees will give you a mature height of 30′ to 60′. A recommended tree spacing of 10′ to 15′ in groves of 6 to 10 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!
