Persimmon tree with no persimmons

Asked October 25, 2018, 7:29 PM EDT

Hello, I have a persimmon tree I transplanted about 3 years ago. The first year, two persimmons grew. The second year, 13 persimmons grew but they all "dropped." The third year (which is this past year), my dad added some "Miracle Gro Citrus plant food spikes" because he said his friend used it and got great results. There were no persimmons this year. I'm wondering if it was the fertilizer and wonder how long it will take for the fertilizer to "wear off" and maybe next year I'll get some fruit. Also, is it because the plant is so young that the previous persimmons dropped?

Is this a native persimmon or an Asian persimmon?
