The tree and fruits generally do not have issues with pests and disease. Fruits serve to attract wildlife to yards. This tree is so successful it is grown commercially throughout the U.S. 

 There are different varieties of them for larger growing areas or smaller spaces. Certain species are smaller and require less growing space. 

 The tree is highly prized for fruit; overall, the tree is considered very attractive and has ornamental value for gardeners. The fruit is edible, and flowers are usually a pale yellow to white; March is when floral blooms sprout.

 The bark formation is striking and a popular design option; the "skin" forms squares that resemble the rough overlapping edges of crocodile skin.

 The wood from the Persimmon Tree is highly durable and known for strength; the wood is turned directly into items such as golf club heads and pool cues, strong enough to become building material in flooring and veneers.
