Diospyros virginiana / American Persimmon



These are healthy plants with foliage that looks tired out. Like a bumpety peach that is sweet and delicious inside. They’ll be glowing and fresh again next spring.

A beautiful tree with delicious fruit, American persimmon is a slender tree ideal for smaller home landscapes and permaculture orchards. It develops a dark checkered bark over time that resembles snakeskin.

The fruits are nectar-sweet when ripe and soft, and are also prized by wildlife including many mammals and several songbirds. Host for the ephemeral Luna Moth.

Female plants bear fruit. A female and male tree are recommended for fruiting. Please contact us for more information.
