    My dad has some persimmon trees on some property of his, and he gave a few of the fruit. They are wild and are in the mountains of North Carolina. Does anyone know how to grow these from seed?

    Thanks a bundle,

    permissions are one of our most diversly usefull trees, beyond obvious wildlife value.

    You are very wise to grow this tree from seed, as this is one of our most difficult native trees to transplant sucessfully due to its course, deep root system. But the same root system gives established trees a ironclad survival rate in virtually any conditions.

    Seeds are very easy to germinate, but the hardy seedlings grow slowlu unless given ideal conditions, and are tolerent of shade. (you can propigate trees from known gender by root cuttings)

    Permission trees are good soil builders and are deep rooted; this makes them exellent lawn trees where quality turf is desierd
    that makes no logic

    Thanks, ok, I'll see what happens. I've read they require stratification, but personally I hate stratifying things. So I'll try without. Oh, how long does it usually take one to sprout?

    i suggest u try a variety of methods, and do try to stratify some incase, for some reason, they fail to germinate. The easiest way to do it is to dig a shallow hole outdoors about now and put the seeds in, then retreive them in spring to plant in the disierd location.

    I think you should plant the seeds directly where u will want the tree, as, stated before, this tree handles transplanting very poorly.

    It should sprout in early to mid spring if u use my suggeste methods
