Persimmon trees tolerate low winter temperatures
The persimmon tree is an excellent plant to grow, both for its aesthetic value and delicious fruit. Early American settlers and Natives valued persimmon for its hardy nature. It can survive low winter temperatures. The American variety, as low as negative twenty-five degrees Fahrenheit and the fruit continues to hang on to the tree well into the winter months. The tree itself is beautiful. It has oblong, dark green leaves that orange nicely in autumn. The bark is dark and forms square blocks that resemble the skin of a crocodile. The fruit is bright orange with smooth skin. It has soft flesh and, when ripe, is sweet and similar to apricot in taste. Wood from the tree is both decorative and resilient.
It is a tree that is somewhat particular when it comes to planting. It is native to much of the United States, spanning from Florida West to Texas and as far north as Connecticut. They can be grown, however, anywhere between growing zones four and nine. It likes well-drained soil that is slightly acidic, somewhere between six points five and seven points five. When planting, it is essential to dig deep when planting them to compensate for their deep taproots. Persimmon trees like to be placed in full sunlight.
Persimmon offer delicious fruit right from your garden
It is essential to be aware that there are two varieties of a persimmon tree, American and Asian. The Asian tree is slightly less resilient, only withstanding winter temperatures as low as zero degrees Fahrenheit. The Asian persimmon does, however, have its advantage. While an American variety must have both a male and female tree present to produce fruit, the Asian variety can bear fruit independently. Once planted, both varieties are pretty low maintenance after they have been established. They do need plenty of water and may need manually watered in dry weather but need nearly no pruning when healthy.
Growing a persimmon tree is a great way to enjoy this delicious fruit right from the garden. Persimmons remain on trees into the winter, and historically Native Americans used them for food during the cooler months. Persimmon trees are beautiful and have value in both the fruit they produce and the wood. The fruit becomes richly sweet upon ripening and has a similar taste to apricots. Persimmon tree wood is solid and complex, and the bark looks like alligator skin. Persimmon trees are not overly picky about soil types, and they don't require a lot of care aside from watering.
