    I planted 3 persimmon trees last spring that seem to be doing well. they all grew some this year and sprouted leaves. My question is how long am I going to have to wait for these trees to bear fruit?

    The trees were 1 1/2 to 2 ft tall when I planted them.

    They can fruitr at 5 or so years, most likely 10 or so.. Keep in mind that some will be males and will never bear fruit.

    Not sure on the time but mine seem to produce fruit every other year or so. But they were loaded down this year good luck with them. O ya there not to bad to eat when they are ripe

    I've never planted one to see how long it takes but I have a couple of 30 40 foot tall ones with lots of little ones nearby and from observing those it appears that the tree won't bear fruit until it gets about 6 to eight feet tall.
