This persimmon is a grafted female that is self-fruitful and will produce without a male pollinator. The fruit ripens in late September and begins falling free from the trees. Yates Persimmons will continue falling through the month of October here in Pennsylvania. The fruit is sweet at this time and 1 1/2” – 2” in size. The tree is annually productive and will reach a mature height of 60’+. Yates persimmons are suitable for plant hardiness zones 5-9 in this map, Plant Hardiness Zones.

Yates persimmons is a grafted tree, defined as using plant tissue from the original tree and attaching it to the new roots. Essentially, it gives you an identical tree to the one you see in the picture and description.
All grafted persimmon trees are as follows: 1′-2′ ($24.95), 2′ – 3′ ($34.95), and 3′ – 4′ ($44.95).
POLLINATION FOR YATES PERSIMMONS
It can be planted as a stand-alone tree as it will produce well without a male pollinator.
Yates 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 tolerate even planting in heavy soils such as clay with a pH of 5.5 as long as adequate nutrients are available. Persimmons require adequate drainage for proper growth and do not plant in wet areas.
Suppose you have not completed a soil test and improved your soil. I recommend mixing 1/2 to 1 ounce of 0-20-20 granular fertilizer in your soil when planting. The first number tells you the percentage of nitrogen contained in the fertilizer. Nitrogen applied directly to the tree’s roots will cause your tree’s death; 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 planting; they must be mixed in through the soil because they are immobile—a few shovels full of composted manure can achieve the same results. We recommend completing a soil test and making amendments for the best results.
Yates persimmon trees are drought tolerant once established, as they grow an extensive root system. The trees grafted to this rootstock will give you a mature height of 60′ to 80′. A recommended tree spacing of 25′ to 30′. Plant in a location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight for optimal growth and fruit production. Persimmons are very shade tolerant and will produce abundantly but need sunlight on the tree for tree health and growth, and fruit is a given even in the shade. You can use your imagination when spacing persimmon trees. Protect the trees from the deer browsing them, as northern deer love to browse persimmons.
Shipping to Plant Hardiness zones 2 – 8 will begin again in mid-March on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays (you select your ship date) and continue until the last Monday in April. Dormant bare-root trees must be planted in the spring, while trees in your area remain dormant. You can select your ship date as you checkout on the website. If you are picking up your trees, typically, the last week in March or the first week in April is perfect for planting in Pennsylvania. We have opened up the free local pick-up to the surrounding states as it could be more cost-effective if you order more than 30 trees. You can select your pick-up date on the website as you checkout.
