The persimmon tree, Diospyros virginiana, is prized for its fruit by both humans and animals. The tree takes its time in growing and blooming the edible treat. A wait of more than two decades is common.
Time Frame
The United States Forest Service indicates that the blooming stage of the persimmon tree is dependent on the geographic location of the planting. The tree will bloom between March and June across its wide hardiness range and from April through May in areas in which the tree grows best.
Geography
The persimmon tree grows best -- and thus blooms best -- in the rich soil of the bottom lands of the Mississippi River. It grows across a wide swath of the southeastern United States and thrives in the southern Atlantic and Gulf coastal states. It does not grow or bloom well in the Appalachian or Allegheny regions.
Maturity
The USFS indicates that the persimmon tree waits a decade or more before it begins to bear fruit. The persimmon blooms will produce edible fruit after approximately 10 years, although the optimum fruit-bearing age for the tree is between 25 and 50 years. The tree should only be expected to provide an exceptional crop about every two years.
