Prok Persimmon Tree: Savor the Bounty of Autumn

About the Fruit

The Prok Persimmon is a delectable treat that captures the essence of fall with its rich, sweet flavor. This American persimmon variety produces large, round fruits with a deep orange hue and a smooth, custard-like texture. Perfect for fresh eating, baking, or creating sumptuous preserves, the Prok Persimmon is a versatile addition to any autumnal feast.

What to Know About the Tree

The Prok Persimmon tree is a deciduous wonder, showcasing vibrant foliage that turns to shades of fiery red and purple in the fall. It stands as a statuesque addition to any landscape, reaching heights of 12-15 feet when mature. Notable for its hardiness and low maintenance needs, the tree is an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners. It’s also dioecious, so you will need both male and female trees for fruit production.

Harvest Season

When the leaves begin to drop and the chill of the season sets in, the Prok Persimmon tree comes alive with its harvest-ready fruits. The bountiful yield starts in late fall, offering a delicious payoff for the year’s care and tending. These persimmons are not only a treat for the palate but provide a striking visual display against the bare branches of the tree.

Fruitscaping™ with Persimmon Trees

Embark on a unique Fruitscaping™ journey with our exquisite selection of Persimmon Trees. We offer both astringent and non-astringent varieties to cater to diverse taste preferences. While astringent persimmons are known for their high tannin content, making them best enjoyed when fully ripe, non-astringent persimmons can be savored crisp, like an apple, without the mouth-puckering sensation.

Persimmon trees are nature’s multi-taskers, adding visual allure, shade, and succulent fruits to your organic garden. They are remarkably resistant to diseases and pests, making them a low-maintenance yet high-reward addition to your Fruitscaping™ endeavors.

Persimmons thrive in well-drained, sandy or loamy soil and prefer slightly acidic conditions. They flourish under full sun exposure, needing at least six hours of sunlight daily to yield a rich crop.

In the Fruitscaping™ design, persimmon trees offer striking ornamental value. Their lush foliage in summer and vibrant, orange-yellow fall colors create a spectacular display. Moreover, the bright orange fruits hanging on the tree after leaf drop offer a unique, decorative touch throughout the winter.

Persimmon trees also prove a fantastic choice for different gardening styles. Whether you choose to shape them into a magnificent espalier or let them grow naturally, they contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal of your garden.

Immerse yourself in the rewarding journey of Fruitscaping™ with our Persimmon Trees. From planting and caring to harvesting and enjoying the sweet, honey-like flavor of your homegrown persimmons, each step is filled with delightful experiences. With our astringent and non-astringent varieties, discover the pleasure of growing and savoring your own persimmons.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
