Hi
Several things will cause young persimmons to drop. 
One of them is what you experienced, excessive
moisture/rain.  Other things are:

    Too dry
    Too much fertilize
    Not enough fertilize

Young trees have a tendency to produce more
blooms/fruit than they can support.  They will drop
the excess.
