If they grow in your area take a walk along some nature trails and back roads. You should be able to find some seed or seedlings.

Persimmons are pretty good deer food. We have them all over the place.One of these trees is in aravine is 8 inches in diameter and has persimmons as big as apples. The deer eat them after they have been on the ground for a good while.

There are one or two varieties that can grow that far north, but it's still going to be a crap shoot on fruit production because of your weather. I'm in zone 6, and they grow everywhere here, but if we have a warm Fall like we have the past few years the fruit is worthless due to the tannin content. Persimmons are at their best in a temperate climate with a frost or two while ripening.

kevin1; it's probably just your varieties. I have one type called "early golden" which ripens at the end of September before we get frosts. It's the sweetest persimmon that I've eaten outside of overripe oriental types. The late seasons that we've been getting are allowing my other seedling trees to mature.
