    AMERICAN PERSIMMON
    Diospyros virginiana


    Wild native persimmons are one of the very best trees for attracting deer and wildlife. Deer actively seek out persimmon trees, and eat every fruit that is within reach or when it hits the ground. American Persimmons will bear fruit in 6-8 years. The fruit has rich, nutty, amaretto flavor, but is astringent until completely ripe. It has black corrugated bark looks like alligator hide and its foliage is orange-red in the fall. Grows in a wide variety of conditions, from wet to sandy soils, lowlands to uplands. Trees are either male or female, so you should plant 3-10 trees in a block, to insure pollination.
