American Persimmon Tree


    The American persimmon tree (known as Diospyros virginiana) is native to eastern United States and not only decorates the landscape beautifully, but also produces tasty, rich, healthy fruit. The fruit matures late in the fall and can stay on the tree until winter. Additionally, it is hardy for zone 5. In order for the tree to fruit though, be sure to plant several seedlings near on another.
