Persimmon trees dropping fruit after flowering

blackhawkgllry(z10FL)June 19, 2010

I bought a couple of persimmon trees a long while back. The trees are fully mature,been in the ground for 10+ years and never fruit.

Each year they flower off, both male and female flowers, the bee's are thick working on the flowers. And thats about as far as it gets. There appear to be tiny fruits dropped on the ground maybe 1/8th" or smaller after the flowering.

Anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?

Other than the fruit drop they are perfectly healthy lovely trees.

Are you sure they produce both male and female flowers? Some persimmons produce only male flowers. It could also just be that the tree doesn't feel ready yet. I have an 8-year persimmon that doesn't even want to flower yet.
