These Persimmon tree seedlings will reach heights between 50' - 80'. These trees are grown from the seed derived from the Full Draw™ persimmon tree, seedlings from the late Jerry Lehmans orchard, and BH Hoosier. BH Hoosier seedlings are derived from many of our favorite persimmons, with Szukis being the pollinator to produce the seed. When producing from all female trees, the odds go up on having many female trees in your planting of seedlings. These are all cold hardy to about -30° F. They bloom from late May to early June, avoiding late damaging frosts to blossoms. Many times, American persimmon are referred to as common persimmon. However, these are anything but a common persimmon tree. These fast-growing persimmon trees are Vigorous, producing an extensive root system as seen in the pictures. Female persimmon trees produce fruit annually. Deer relish persimmon trees for their sweet plum-like fruit that drops in early fall through winter. Seedlings will be male or female.

Persimmons are very shade tolerant; even the center female will produce fruit from top to bottom as the trees mature together. When planting seedlings, you will get a variety of drop times from late summer through fall and into winter. When planting these persimmon seedlings into optimal soil, the females will begin flowering and producing in four years or less and carry their fruit.

This grafted pear tree produces a dessert-quality pear. Ayer's pear begins dropping in very late August to the beginning of September and pretty much finishes dropping by the end of September here in central Pennsylvania. Moving this tree south from here may drop a little earlier, depending on when your trees bloom. Drop times will move forward as you move it north. This is perfect timing here as the bucks begin shedding velvet and a few begin dispersing and setting up that new home range. I wouldn't create an orchard that didn't have fruit falling at this time so that you may pick up some new bucks, not lose them. Ayer's is just one tree that is an excellent example of a tree capable of doing so. It's a good tree that stays disease-free in a no-spray situation. I have seen no FireBlight in this tree and good resistance to scab in a no-spray situation. This tree has excellent vigor and produces annually with a decent-sized European that is very sweet as it is falling (no cold storage to become sweet). Ayer's pear will reach a mature height of 20'+. Suitable for plant hardiness zones 5-7. Only available in 2-yr trees.Select options
Bartlett seedling (Pyrus Domestica) is a standard full-size pear rootstock. The 1/4" to 3/8" Bartlett seedling rootstock is more vigorous than that of OHXF 97. Winter hardy well into plant hardiness zone 4 at -25 to -30 degrees. This pear rootstock will reach a mature height of well above 20' (as seen in pictures) and is compatible with most pear varieties, especially European cultivars. They will grow in a wide range of soils with deep penetrating ''real roots''. Some of the oldest pear trees I know of today are produced on these roots in zone 4b. This pear makes an excellent rootstock when growing pear trees for wildlife. In my experience, it's typical for me to have a pear on this rootstock achieve 20' by age five and yet achieve 3' of growth annually in years after. This creates an enormous pear tree reaching well above 30' mature height providing the most mast possible. When grafting onto the most vigorous one-year-old seedling, such as these in 3/8'' diameter.

Bluebyrd is a great European-type plum that has excellent resistance to black knots. Black knot is one of the most common ailments to afflict plum trees. It is caused by the fungus Apiosporina morbosa and will severely limit fruit production on plum trees and eventually cause death to the trees.
