Grow this native tree across the United States in USDA growing zones 5-9. With little maintenance needed to keep it thriving, it is adaptable to most soil sites as long as it’s in full sun with well-draining soil.

It is an important food source for many wildlife including deer, birds, and squirrels. American Persimmon is moderately salt tolerant and a good choice for coastal plantings.

This Female Persimmon tree is specifically picked to pollinate male flowering persimmon trees found in the wild.

The mature tree size is up to 40-60 feet tall but they can get taller in the wild with a 20-25 foot spread. The American Persimmon tree growth rate is moderate, up to 1 foot per year. It does not require another fruit tree in the area for cross-pollination but will have a higher yield if there is one nearby.

Apply a slow-release fertilizer in the early spring to help boost growth and fruit production. Prune the tree as desired to maintain shape and size. Maintain a regular watering schedule until the tree is well established. It is drought tolerant once established. The easygoing female persimmon tree has no serious pest or disease problems.

The tree does not ship bare root. It is rooted in its nursery container in soil.

We Shall See Said the Blind Mice

I've placed and received 2 orders of Morris Burton Persimmons (Deer Candy Persimmons). The trees arrived by UPS without visible damage. The Persimmons were securely packaged and the container had minimal loss of soil. Overall, the trees appear in healthy condition. I appreciate the quick responses from customer service and the manner in which issues were addressed. We shall see what happens this spring at green-up time.
