It is fast growing and has good size and native to America.

apricot flavor but good up to zone 4. Perfect! Pretty big tree, but we have plenty of space, thankfully, so that wasn't a factor for us.

Persimmons for whitetail
Tried other sources for American Persimmons and they didn't survive the winter. Stark Bros was the answer. I have purchased other fruit trees and had great success with them. The Persimmons trees survived the winter and are growing great this spring. Would recommend them to everybody.

Five Years and Going Strong
Purchase a Stark Yates Persimmon five years ago and it has done astoundingly well. Began fruiting in small quantities the second year, and by last year was quite prolific. The tree is at least 15 feet in height, perhaps closer to 20. Very healthy. As you might suspect, I am very pleased

Yates is Yummy
Last year I had my first taste of Yates Persimmons from my tree and I liked them better than the other varieties. This year my tree is loaded. I like that it is a no spray easy care tree, too.

Survived the winter!
I was not sure, it seemed we had a REALLY variable winter, both too hot and too cold. I thought it would die in spring frosts, but the persimmon tree survived; next step fruits!

It died down and is coming back but am afraid it is from below the graft.

It arrived in good condition and made it through the winter. It will be a few years before I have any further to say about it.

Disappointed
Last year they grew great. Early spring they really didn't look that good. It was a mild winter here near Tomah Wisconsin and a wet spring. It has dried out a little recently. I was just there today and it looks like both plants are dead. They had plenty of water and I actually put some light fertilizer on as well. I'm very disappointed in the product.
