Persimmons are great for deer in Central Kentucky, and grow well in optimal conditions, especially in the Southeast. They’re super for early bow season stands when deer are looking for the tasty treats.
Planting persimmon trees in Kentucky for food plots can be a useful strategy for attracting and providing food for wildlife, including white-tailed deer. Persimmons are a highly desired food source for many animals, and the fruit can provide an important source of nutrition, especially during the fall and winter months when other food sources may be scarce.
When planting persimmons for food plots, it’s important to choose a species and variety that is well-suited to your local climate and soil conditions, and to plant the trees in an area with adequate sunlight and access to water. It’s also a good idea to protect young trees from browsing damage with tree tubes or other types of physical barriers, until they become large enough to resist deer browsing.
In addition to providing food for wildlife, persimmon trees can also offer other benefits such as shade, shelter, and habitat for a variety of wildlife species, making them a valuable addition to many food plots.
