WE *DO* SHIP BARE ROOT PLANTS.
Bare root plants can be shipped March-May or picked up in Champaign, IL (select shipping vs pickup at checkout). We will contact you to schedule a pickup time once your trees are ready.
Bare root plants must be ordered in multiples of 25. Bare root chestnut are 12-24″. Bare root plants are cheaper than potted plants, but, for some growers, potted plants are easier to establish if you are new to planting trees.
We source our seed each fall from a range of the best persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) trees across an array of Midwestern farms. This ensures that the seedling trees you buy have the highest chance of producing high yields of top-notch fruit. Our nursery might be new on the block, but the orchards that we get our seed from are certainly not!
Persimmon are dioecious (male and female flowers are on different trees). Our seedlings are not filtered for sex, so seedlings will include a mix of male and female plants.
