Have 3 of these trees in my backyard , and was curious about what they are. It is a struggle keepingyoung shoots down every year. Thanks :)
Brak of the tree
and one more
My thought as well: Diospyros virginiana.
I second the persimmon.
That is very interesting!! This was the first year I have noticed all three trees with the small buds? Wonder how they managed to get in my back yard. I am very happy thou , more fruits to enjoy !! Thanks again !
Poop of some kind put the trees there
Here's a previous post, that's what you're gonna see in a few days.
Here is a link that might be useful: Common Persimmon Post
My fiance swears it isn't a Persimmon Tree..Guess he will find out he isn't always right :) lol. Thanks for the link!! They are beautiful trees!
Have a few people telling me Crab Apple?? I agree with oyou guys thou , from the photos I have looked at , the Persimmon Tree looks very similar to the mystery trees in my back year :)
Crabapples produce different, up- or outward facing flowers in bunches, like those of orchard apples. The bark pattern is also one you would not expect to see being made by a Malus.
Wanted to share this photo :) This is going to be a beautiful tree!! I also agree with you bboy :)
When they produce a lot of fruit, they are also very ornamental once the leaves fall and the hanging fruit is visible on the naked branches.
The photos you've posted - with clusters of 2-3 blossoms per leaf axil - are characteristic of a 'male' tree, which will likely produce no fruit. Female flowers are born as solitary blossoms, not in clusters.
If one or more of the other 3 persimmons in your yard are 'female', then you'll likely get fruit production on them.
Ahh man :*( Then the three rees may be male then :*( Apparently my father-in-law has two in his backyard I havent cked them out yet but , he lives close. Would they be close enough for pollenation? The trees are proabably around 60 foot away?
Why would all the blooms fall off ? All three trees did this
Both males and unfertilized females have no reason to retain the spent blooms.
Uggg :( thanks . Really sucks , I guess they will make great shade trees.
Could be all 3 trees are clones. These trees will grow a whole grove from shoots that come up from the roots.
This I learned: male flowers, as a rule on Persimmons, are closer together. I went out and checked my trees (not blooming yet, but the buds are there), and they follow this 'rule'. Thanks lucky.
