Persimmon Tree: As you shop for this fruit bearing tree, you will notice two origins: an Asian species and a North American species, Diospyros virginiana. TN Nursery specializes in hardy native species that thrive in the United States; therefore, we proudly grow Diospyros virginiana for our customers.
You might also wonder why it is essential for you to understand the distinction. But that is simple--plant hardiness. The Asian variety of the persimmon tree is slightly less resilient to the growing conditions in the United States than Diospyros virginiana. When you invest your money in plants, you want the healthiest, most hardy species to help you achieve a successful outcome. That is a goal we share with you, so that is what you will get with TN Nursery's persimmon tree.
The American persimmon tree pre-dates the first explorers and colonial settlements. The indigenous people first recognized the hardy species could grow almost anywhere, so they cultivated them for food and medicine.
The Persimmon Tree Is a Lovely Ornamental Tree
The American persimmon tree is woody and deciduous; it is a medium-sized tree that reaches a mature height of between thirty to eighty feet.
The tree canopy features bright green, somewhat symmetrical, oval leaves with gently pointed tips. The branches are sturdy but slender and tough when faced with storms, wind, or anything else Mother Nature gives it. The tree bark is a deep gray with an intriguing alligator skin texture.
The American persimmon tree will thrive in poor soil, hot or dry conditions, or in an urban garden. As long as you provide plenty of sunshine, it will do well.
Persimmon fruit is ovate, with an appearance similar to a peach or nectarine. They are sweet, juicy, and delicious. If you don't like persimmons, you can leave the fruit hanging for the wildlife--your backyard flock of birds will thank you.

The tree was packaged very well. It is very healthy and a nice size. I am very pleased with my little tree. Thank you. 😊
First a little skeptical. Now it’s starting to grow leaves. Thank you!
I gave it a four star because it is very thin with one off shoot 4" and not sure if it will live or not. Roots wrapped with shredded paper, dry. If all goes well thru the spring and growth comes out, then I will give an update for the Rating. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best. Thanks
Tree's came when they said they would. Love them! They look great. Thanks everyone.
