Yes it looks like Persimmon , I find them in my yard a lot . I dig them up carefully trying not to damage the roots , replant in new location make sure to keep watered for several days . I pick out the smallest saplings to move its a lot easier to dig them up.

Couple years back a KY state U professor did a project on persimmons and pawpaws. He sought the best tasting, most productive, etc. trees for seeds to work with toward a commercial use. I don't know where it all ended but something to look into.
There a nursery in KY that deals in such stuff plus hardy pecans, heartnut trees, etc. I think the name is "Englands Nursery"?
Honestly most persimmons I've picked up were about the same-if ripe. I pulp them in a food mill like maters then freeze for cookies & breads. very tasty! pawpaws I don't like and most get eaten before I see them anyway.

Good luck getting enough roots with them to transplant. I tried to move several from N. Fla to WV a few years back and using a shovel I never got enough root stock for them to be viable.

I collect the seeds in the fall , plant them in the spring and most of them sprout . I put a rat wire cage around where I plant to keep critters from digging them up .

 This is the best shovel I've found for digging up small trees to transplant .

thanks bud, yeah I have a ton, ton, ton of pawpaws on my property, Ive found you have a bout 2 days to find them edible, and then its okay.  I haven't tried any of the local persimmons.

I plan to use a stump bucket, and I'm just transplanting them to other food plots on the same property, I guess I could also try and graft some this winter.  we'll see.  but I feel if I dig a hole with stump bucket and up root tree and take straight to the hole I already dug, that I should be good, but I know they are tough to transplant

Persimmon is dioecious, that is, there are male and female plants.  If you want persimmons, hopefully you pick a girl and not a boy :).  Transplanting is best done in the dormant season (winter) when there is less shock to the plant.

Yes, you have to turn them over and look under the roots!😂😂😂

   Just say something. If it agrees with you it is male. If it corrects you .... :D
