The description sounded appealing. Persimmons grow wild in Missouri, so I'm hoping this domestic one will do well.

Is this an astringent variety?
Shirley on Dec 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Prok will be astringent if it is not allowed to fully ripen. You cannot judge ripeness by the skin color, since the fruit will be fully orange before it is ripe. When ripe, Prok persimmon fruit should be completely soft, with an almost jelly-like texture inside when it is sweet enough to eat. A good sign of ripeness is when the fruit starts dropping from the tree. Just gather and enjoy!

prok persimmons
My dad bought 4 trees for me about 10 years ago. 3 of them have made it. They have had fruit for at least the last 6 years. Most of them have 1 to 3 seeds. This year some of the fruit are 2 1/2" across. I would highly recommend that you try these.

Persimmons
I bought persimmons before and was surprised at how fast they started to grow. I haven't had them long enough to produce fruit but it shouldn't be much longer.

Prok American Persimmon
This is my 2nd. year since planting. I haven't had any persimmon production yet; however, I believe I might have some this season. Can't wait! My neighbor has 2 trees that bear, but they are very stingy with their gifts. My trees are beautiful. They have grown & matured so much this Spring. Healthy plants.

My Prok Persimmon is doing beautifully. I watered it deeply once a weed all season. It put on two flushes of growth grew very nicely, wintered a Blue Ridge Mountain winter with no problems and broke bud with many plump healthy buds. Amazingly, since breaking bud in April it has grown in height 12 inches (it is now mid-May)! Truly a gorgeous specimen I would recommend to anyone.

Hardy little tree
Glad my persimmon tree came to me packaged with a support stake as this particular one seems to like to lean. It's going on year 2 (maybe 1.5) and is leafing out quite well this spring. I need to weed around it. I took a pic of it but unfortunately this review doesn't seem to let me paste. Good little tree.

Persimmon Didn't Grow
I purchased two Prok Persimmon trees last year, one took off growing and has reached 4+ feet and looks very healthy. The second tree never took off growing remained at approximately 15 inches and the main trunk died during the winter. I planted both of them with good soil and a lot of sun light. With the first tree growing very well I may have persimmons in 2-3 years.
