Did anyone else get fruits on their persimmon trees this year?

I didnt and wondered if that late frost in Easter did it.

Does anyone know if these trees are male and female seperate plants?

No persimmons for me here in Central Missouri... Nor any other fruit except a few blackberries.

Do you have American persimmons?

I had to google this, but trees are either male or female. One site said female trees can produce seedless fruit if no pollinator... I thought that was interesting

RE: persimmon trees

I found some persimmon's that did fruit this year and I live in St. Joseph, MO. They are at the Mark Youngdahl CA in town.

I thought that the trees had to be pollinated by another tree to produce fruit????????? Learn something new every day.

RE: persimmon trees

We live in Indiana and my one persimmon tree was loaded with fruit. I collected seed from somewhere and brought them home and just threw them in the flower bed. I am always gathering seed from wherever we go. I also got a chickapin oak the same way. Both are way taller than our house in three or four years. This is thefirst year for persimmons though.
