The Diospyros Virginiana - American Persimmon tree is native to the eastern U.S. The fruit is higher in nutrients like vitamin C and calcium and is extremely sweet, juicy and delicious than the Japanese persimmon, albeit smaller in size. This tree is a moderate growing deciduous tree that can reach a mature height of 30 to 80 feet depending on location, but harvesting isn't hindered by size as you typically shake the ripe fruit off. The trunk ascends up through the crown of the tree rarely producing double or multiple leaders. The blooms appear from May to June and are white to greenish yellow in color. In the fall the glossy green leaves will turn to a spectacular red color.
Sweet treats not only for humans, but the deer will love them also. If you really want to bring the deer in close, consider planting a large grove of Persimmon trees. The fruit is also enjoyed by squirrel, fox, deer, bear and various birds.
Attracts birds, bees and butterflies.
