Orders are for Fall Season

Fall Season our trees are not yet dormant. As such, we ship the plants in containers.

 We do not recommend fall plantings for USDA plant zone 5.

 

If you are planting in USDA Plant zone 6 your order will ship out in mid October due to high demand of our trees, our first few shipping weeks are full.

Ideally it would be best to plant young trees coming from Florida in late September.

You will want to protect your young trees from any frosts and freezes or delay shipping to our spring bareroot/dormant season.

 

Fall orders are shipped by USDA Plant zones.

Plant Zones 6: late September
Plant Zones 7-8: October–November
Plant Zones 8-9: November– early December

Pruning Most persimmon trees require minimal pruning, especially once they’re bearing fruits. Pruning is usually restricted to controlling the tree’s size or removing dead, diseased, and damaged branches. Prune any suckers that develop.
Fertilization It is not recommended to fertilize trees at the time of planting or young trees. Excessive fertilizing may cause premature fruit drop. Apply a balanced slow release fertilizer after the tree is established and begins to break dormancy in spring.
Watering Newly planted trees should be watered regularly. This is the most critical step in the establishment of your new trees. Please see the Watering section under "How to plant and grow" in our Learning Center.
