About the Persimmon:
 

Parents are from the very cold hardy Early Golden strain. High sugar fruit enjoyed by all types of wildlife especially whitetail and turkeys. One day bow hunting in my tree stand I watched turkey's leap frog over each other when they heard some of fruit fall out of the trees. The fruit on Persimmon ripens late in the fall and doesn't really start to fall from the tree until after a couple of hard frosts.  Produces fruit in 6-8 years.  Will grow in all soil types including sand or clay.  Wood is from the ebony family and is very valuable.  Golf clubs and pool cues are made from this very hard wood. These trees are male and female, so plant them in groups to insure fruit.
