Thanks, Maria, for your comment!

LOL Gene; I can't send you any persimmons, but they're small and full of seeds anyway, with very thick, sour skins, hardly any pulp to them. Once as an experiment we decided to make persimmon pudding. I didn't think we would EVER get enough pulp for the recipe; if I were doing it again I would buy the commercial kinds, which are much larger and some are seedless.

Ooh, nice!

Haven't had persimmons since I was a kid, for some reason. Last time I even *heard* persimmons mentioned was on an ep of "Legend Of The Seeker". :D

Now ya got me hungry for one...

Thanks, Delana and pictonite! Delana, the wild persimmons are hardly worth gathering, though some people here do it. If I liked them that well, I would buy a cultivated grafted variety. The wild ones, and maybe also the grafted ones depending whether they are grafted on seedlings, have the troublesome habit of sending up root sprouts all over the place; thus a single tree can soon become a grove if you don't keep mowing off the sprouts.

Thank you, approvers, for the blue!

Very beautiful Kathy, love it and Congrats on your AC! We found one in the woods the other day and I had gathered some of the persimmons thinking maybe I can grow one that way but then decided they would make too much of a mess, lol. I didn't think about it drawing raccoons and possums.

Thanks, Joan! Conditions were very similar to the night before, when most of the clouds dispersed before they could color up, but a few remained.

Thanks for commenting, Margo! The persimmons your friend raises, or that you can buy, are cultivated varieties that are much larger than the poor fruits borne by wild trees. This particular one is a male tree, thus has no fruit, which suits me fine since I don't need possums and coons in the yard after the fruit, LOL!

What a nice shot, K. I have not seen a persimmon tree since I moved down to FL 40 years ago. They grew all over in the woods on the farm back home in TN.
There is an Oriental lady I work with who brings persimmons to work every day to eat that she gets from a tree she planted in her yard...and I did not know they would grow down here.
One persimmon costs $2.50 in the store!
