Persimmon Trees

Q.Flowers but no fruit. Why?

Zone 02054 | jlitvlnvla added on June 19, 2019 | Answered

I planted this persimmon tree a few years ago that was supposed to be self fertilizing. Last year it started having flowers and they all fell off. No fruits formed. This year there are tons of flowers on the tree. Again they’re all falling off. I’ve seen them getting pollinated by several bees. Why aren’t any fruits forming? This year i saw 2 new trees starting to come up. I’d never planted them. I’m letting them grow. Do you think they’ll help? I thought this was self fertilizing. Any ideas why the flowers fall off but no fruit?
