Your persimmon tree is thinning itself out - it can only develop so many fruits so it is dropping what it considers excess fruit. As the tree matures it will be able to develop more fruit to maturity but right now it knows just how many it can grow and still maintain its own health. Just be patient and your persimmon will someday produce more fruit than you can possibly use!
