Persimmon trees are either male or female and only the females bear fruit. You can tell male trees from female trees because male flowers are smaller and appear in small clusters, while the larger female flower appears alone.
Is there male and female persimmon trees?
Most plants are hermaphroditic: Each individual has male and female organs. An exception is the persimmon tree, which belongs to a small group of plants that are dioecious — that is, one sex or the other. Females need pollen from male trees to produce fruit.
How deep do I plant a persimmon tree?
Bare root should be planted same depth as in the nursery row (or no more than 1-inch below). For potted trees, dig the hole 4 times the width of the roots and ½ times the depth. Potted should be planted at same depth as grown in pot. Position tree in planting hole and fill with original soil.
Can I eat two Persimmons a day?
If you eat persimmons, eat them after meals and peel them, since most of the tannic acid is in the peel. Eating them on an empty stomach is not advised as excessive consumption can cause stones. No one should eat more than three at a time because they contain so much cold energy.
