Are native persimmon trees self-pollinating?

Are native persimmon trees (Diospyros virginiana) self-pollinating? The nurseryman from whom I recently bought the tree was unsure. Some websites say that they are, while others say a male and a female are required for fruit production (the label didn't indicate a sex).

Also, the tree is 4 ft tall in a 3 gal. container. The lowest branches are almost at ground level. Should I do any pruning now or prune in winter? When pruning, should these low branches be removed?
