*Info* Age of trees by container size:
3 gallons are 2yrs old. 7 gallons are 3yrs old.
*Note Grafted Female American persimmons are all self pollinating except for the variety, Morris Burton.

The variety tag is a small horizontal plastic tag with no picture located on the trunk of the tree with the variety name.
If you plant a Morris Burton you will need to have a few American seedling persimmons planted 15-20' near or plant with a Deer Magnet persimmon.

The American seedling (non-grafted) persimmon trees are either male or female
(you can't tell by looking at them) so you should plant several together (3-10) to make sure that you will get at least a few females that will bear fruit.
