*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.

Spring Planting Instructions

The Best Food Plot Tree

The American Chestnut was the primary mast tree for wildlife in the eastern U.S., until it was killed by the Chestnut Blight. The blight resistant Dunstan Chestnut makes possible the replanting of the American hardwood forests with the tree that produces more high quality food per acre than oaks or other trees.
