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.

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.

Undoubtedly persimmon.
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.

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.
