    I’m seeing that this tree needs to be female in order to fruit? How many should one buy?

      This note is left on a seeds page–we do not have persimmon trees available–you should grow several trees to assure pollination. Wild persimmons tend to be self-fertile, while cultivars tend to need a pollinator. richo
