Persimmon Tree Description

Persimmon Tree 

The American Persimmon Tree or Diospyros virginiana comes in cultivars categorized as "astringent" and "non-astringent."

An astringent cultivar must be soft before eaten, while non-astringent cultivars can be eaten crisp like an apple. The American Persimmon Tree fruit is classified as astringent. A delicious sweet soft fruit, Persimmons can be made into jam and jellies.

Care and Maintenance

American Persimmon Trees grow best in slightly acidic and loamy soils yet adapt to other soils except for salty ones. Good drainage is necessary for any fruit tree to prevent root rot and fungus. Full sun with some afternoon shade is optimal light conditions for growing Persimmons. However, shifting light patterns may affect your Persimmon since they bear fruit until late autumn.

Your American Persimmon Tree does need regular watering after being planted. However, once established, your American Persimmon Tree will not need extra water except during dry seasons. The American Persimmon Tree will thrive in temperatures to 25 F. Locate your American Persimmon Tree where it will be best protected from winter winds. American Persimmon Trees do best where other deciduous trees proliferate and enjoy moderate humidity. The American Persimmon Tree does not need fertilizer unless the soil is poor, so you can amend it with rich fertilizer.

Considerations

Due to their intense astringency, let your American Persimmons ripen fully before picking. Then allow them to become entirely soft to enjoy their full sweet taste. Persimmon fruits ripen in late autumn and may stay on the tree through winter.

Persimmon fruits can grow heavy on branch tops when fruit clusters mature, causing branch breakage. When your Persimmon Tree is mature, you can prune dead branches to maintain its health. Persimmons are generally disease and pest free.

In winter, birds and wildlife love Persimmon Tree fruit. Planting a few Persimmon Trees in a stand among other fruit trees will add a pop of color to your garden landscape all season. Make the Persimmon Tree a top consideration as a unique choice for your woodland garden or fruit tree orchard style landscape.
