A good, healthy Asian persimmon tree costs in today’s market $29. After three years the fruit from one season will sell for over $1,000 wholesale.
I now have seven trees and if things go right, I will have over one-hundred in four or five years. Last year we got over three thousand persimmons total off of seven trees. Several trees were in the second year. The tree you see here is six years old and one good year this tree alone produced close to five thousand persimmons. At wholesale we get fifty to sixty cents, we sell a lot retail and get a little over a dollar each.
I hope to have sixty to one-hundred trees in the coming years. I have enough land for that much or more. Thirty circular feet is plenty for each tree, and I have almost six acres.
We have tried many different kinds of fruit trees and many kinds of nut trees, but this is the only kind that the deer and squirrels don’t bother. The bugs and other foliage eating insects are almost non existent. I only spray them once a year and fertilizer once a year. I make my own fertilizer from my chickens. The thing we like the most about this product is the fact that it grows and produces without care of any kind. It is a miracle tree, not only that, but my wife loves the fruit.
We ship all over and this is with just a few trees, last years trees haven’t started producing and we still only have seven trees at the present. At fifty cents a piece does it look like buying a tree for $29 is a bargain??? What do you think?
