Every knowledgeable deer (and deer hunter) knows the only thing better than having a loaded persimmon dropping her sweet treats is having a GROVE of “simmons” to choose from. Those single trees are great but it seems the deer don’t go too far out of their way for just one tree. If you really want to bring ‘em in close from great distances, establish patches of trees to see some real results. Since persimmons can produce fruit on small stature trees, you may also want to plan ahead by planting a faster growing tree to hang a stand in nearby.
With the help of a proper planting job, tree tubes, and maintenance, a persimmon tree on an average site with plenty of sun can begin producing fruit in six to ten years. Considering the male to female ratio is usually 1:1, we recommend planting at least ten trees per patch to get enough fruiters to really draw ‘em in.

This is my second set of trees ordered. Of my first 6, only 3 made it. No fault to the trees … 1 died from lack of water (my fault) and 2 were unearthed by the HOA landscaper 😡. Can’t wait to get these 6 trees in the ground!
Trees came in great shape. Thanks.
The persimmon seedlings arrived in good shape and are still doing well planted in tubes. My only complaint is the huge amount of tape used. That made them a bit tough to unwrap.
