The persimmon trees we have for sale are seed grown. Unlike other fruit trees persimmons are relatively pest and disease free. This makes them ideal for a low maintenance garden. Persimmons are largely unknown to the general populace because when ripe they are too soft to ship to grocery stores without damaging them. This is unfortunate because they are incredibly delicious and almost everyone would enjoy the flavor and sweetness. Their drought tolerance makes them suitable for planting on dry sites. Persimmons are excellent wildlife trees because unharvested fruit stays on the tree into the winter. Planting more than one tree is necessary because persimmons can be either male or female and both are required for fruit set.
