Why I Chose This Tree:
Types of Persimmon Fruit
Persimmon Trees are native and wide spread through-out North Carolina. They are not only beautiful for landscaping, but produce edible fruit for animals and even humans. The fruit can be made into pudding, cake, bread, pie, wine, beer, and many other non-alcoholic beverages.
Pollination-variant (PVNA): edible only if firm & pollinated
Pollination-constant (PCNA): edible always when firm
