Why plant Elmo Common Persimmon Treeling?
Looking for a tree that will provide stunning bloom color, a juicy harvest, and winter interest? Elmo checks all of those boxes to enrich your landscape today! Creamy-Yellow buds mixed with vibrant green leaves will give way to larger-than-average orange/red tasty persimmon fruits. Elmo fruits are ideal for consuming straight off the branch, or be creative and add these yummy fruits to a favorite recipe! Once the colder weather strikes, the green leaves turned to a yellow/orange/green mix that welcomes autumn. Winter brings to light the bark's deep crevices that can prove to be of interest while the tree hibernates during this cold season.
Native from Connecticut to Florida and reaching as far west as Kansas, the Common Persimmon is a part of our country’s natural heritage. Since the days of the earliest Native Americans, its fruits have been a special treat for people in the East and Midwest. Don’t eat them before they’re ripe, though! Biting into a bitter persimmon before it’s ready is a mistake you’ll only make once. When they’re jelly-soft, however, they become as sweet as candy. Because the wood of the Persimmon Tree is incredibly hard, it’s used to make golf club heads. This tree is closely related to Ebony, a tropical tree with extremely dark, dense wood that has traditionally been used to make the black keys on pianos.

How To Plant Elmo Common Persimmon Treeling
Elmo Common Persimmon flourishes in fencerows and other wild spaces all over the eastern U.S., and it will most likely thrive in your garden as well without a lot of fuss. Give it a site in all-day sun in soil that drains well. Regular water is important during the establishment period, but once its sturdy roots are firmly anchored in the ground, your Persimmon will be quite drought tolerant. Try to avoid damaging the trunk, which will encourage this tree’s natural tendency to sucker. Suckers may be cut or mowed off to maintain a single-trunked specimen, or they may be left to do their thing if you’d like a multi-stemmed, seasonal privacy screen to develop.
How Does Shipping Work?
Size Small, Medium, and Large plants (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 4-7 business days.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
