Price for Package of 5 seeds.

The American persimmon produces a large crop of sweet edible fruit with very little attention but also produces valuable timber and is great for bees and therefore for honey production. The persimmon is easy to grow with fast growth until fruiting commences.
 It will grow to a height of about 15ft in the first 5 years. It prefers a deep, loamy, well-drained soil, but will tolerate any soil that is not waterlogged. The tree is drought resistant.
The American Indian used the fruit in gruel, cornbread and puddings and with honey locust pods, made an alcoholic beverage.
The American persimmon mixed with cornmeal can be brewed into "simmon beer". Vinegar could also be made with this fruit.
 The fruit can provide a self feeding fodder crop for livestock. All livestock enjoy the ripe fruit as they fall from the tree. They are also popular with wildlife.
Good fruiting trees can be grown from the seeds. Fruiting begins, and continues for fifty years or more.
 The tree is hardy to -29 C.
