Wild Persimmon

Diospyros virginiana
Wild Persimmon, (Diospyros virginiana)

The fruits of the wild persimmon are just about ripe now. Even though they are common and our the biggest edible wild fruit I don’t eat them much. They are so astringent that they make my mouth pucker. To taste good you have to add tremendous amounts of sugar.
