Likewise, people ask, where do persimmon trees grow best?
The American persimmon, also known as the common persimmon, is native from Florida to Connecticut, west to Iowa and south to Texas. Persimmon trees can be grown in USDA plant hardiness zones 4 through 9. The American persimmon can tolerate temperatures down to -25 F.
do persimmon trees need a lot of water? To achieve optimal growth and quality fruit, regular watering is required. Water your persimmon tree for 10 minutes once or twice a week in the spring and summer. Persimmon trees will withstand short periods of drought. Your climate will dictate whether more or less watering is needed.
Also, what kind of soil do persimmon trees like?
Hardy persimmon trees tolerate various soil conditions, with the exception of extremely salty soils. But planting your persimmon in a fertile, loamy soil helps promote optimal plant growth and fruit production. These trees prefer a neutral soil, with a pH of 6.5 to 7.5.
How long does it take for a persimmon tree to grow?
Oriental persimmons bloom after five years but do not bear fruit until after seven years. Grafted trees bloom within two to three years. American persimmon may take several years to blossom and still not fruit for up to 10 years. Both American and Oriental persimmons have alternate year blooming and fruiting.
