Persimmons do not set and hold fruit well when they are young. Stresses from droughty soil or soggy soil conditions or excessive fertilization (how much cow manure?) or a heavy fruit load or shady conditions can all result int fruit drop.
Provide good care by not overwatering or overfertilizing. The tree should settle down and start to set and then not drop its fruit loads better each year.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
