Everyone knows persimmons are like candy to deer. Regular American persimmons make great early season food sources but if you want to draw in deer throughout the season you need to try these Late Drop American Persimmons. These persimmons are derived from carefully selected populations of native trees that consistently hold onto their fruit late into the year. Fruit ripens in early fall and drops slowly throughout fall and into winter, often holding as long as Dec or Jan. This slow drop time creates a habit for deer and it's not uncommon to see the same deer returning day after day to clean up any freshly fallen fruit. These trees are absolute magnets for deer in the late season.
Their ability to hold their fruit late into the season really takes the attraction level of these trees to the next level. When every other persimmon in the woods has long been dried up these trees will still be dropping right on into winter and pulling in deer from all around. The juicy orange fruits are loaded with sugars that provide the energy needed for deer during harsh conditions.
Persimmons are easy to grow and do well in many different soil types: well drained, wet soils, sandy, clay, marginal areas, etc. As a wild tree they are easy to grow and very disease and pest resistant.

I have ordered and planted well over 100 trees online from various wildlife tree sellers, including the big name brands, and the trees I just received from Whitetail Hill Chestnuts are the best looking trees I have ever received... EVER! They are easily 2 feet tall and full of big green leaves. They will make a great addition to my deer and turkey hunting property in Oklahoma and I'm sure I will be ordering more!Oklahoma

I ordered trees from Whitetail Hill they shipped my trees July 12 Priority Mail and were scheduled to arrive Thursday July 15th. When they didn't arrive on the 15th I checked the USPS tracking number that I was provided and USPS just kept telling me each day after that they were scheduled to arrive late. I emailed Whitetail Hill on July 19th and got a prompt response from Caleb H. My question to him was that if my trees did arrive what he thinks they would be alive he said there was a good chance that they wouldn't be and that he would do anything he could to help make the order right.
USPS finally delivered my trees on July 22nd. 7 days late on delivery with the box ripped in half. I open the package expecting to find my dead trees since they'd been in a box for 11 days to my surprise the trees were as green as ever. This just goes to show the quality of trees that these guys grow and send to us. I would highly recommend these guys and have already placed another order for more trees.Mount Vernon, Kentucky
