American Persimmon

We have selected three varieties of northern persimmons for their large size, eating qualities, and ripening dates to extend the harvest. Growing in the open, it can be a short tree 20′ to 30′ tall and 20′ wide. A woods grown tree can be a giant, 60 to 70′ tall with a clear trunk 30′ to the first branch. Hardy in zones 4-9. Unripe persimmons are very astringent. But when ripe, they truly live up to their Latin name “Food of the Gods.” Persimmons are also relished by wildlife, including honeybees. The flowers are small and inconspicuous. Greenish white, they open in late-May and early-June. Read More
