I have a persimmon tree that is about 3 years old. It has gotten a few more branches but is still small and has never had a flower on it. It said self pollinating. I have not fertilzied it. What should I use, what should I expect why won't it flower?

A 3 year old persimmon tree should be mature enough to flower and produce fruit. You can prune yours back to encourage new growth and (hopefully) flowers. As long as it is getting adequate sunlight it should flower for you. Best wishes with your persimmon!
