Excellent article, AYC!
Thanks for being so thorough and informative. I had no idea about the antiseptic properties of persimmons. Now I do.

Great job Yank! So much info and I have learned something new.
Who knew they had antiseptic properties! I really need to read more! LOL

Very interesting Cat! Nice job. Never tasted one since I was not sure how to judge ripeness at the market.

Victor - I've never tasted the astringent type either. But I love the Fuyus! I was able to get a Fuyu grafted onto a jiro rootstock from eBay that seems to love it in my backyard. I hope it will start producing next summer!

Memory, I'm leaving in an hour to get my mom, and I don't have time to read the article yet. I'm bookmarking it and writing a note to myself to read it as soon as I get back. It looks great!! I love the picture of you standing in your compost!

Wait, so it MIGHT live in my Bostonian backyard? from eBay? I like Permaculture too. And I thought pessamin was a Native American word for cranberry, but I do get my fruits mixed up. So there were more than three fruits native to North America? Aha! [I read cranberries, Concord grapes and apples. Obviously there are more; there are blueberries, elderberries, the entire Vaccinium genus, etc., etc. And aren't squash technically fruit, too?] I digress. Great article, Cat, thank you. xxx, Carrie

What an informative article! This is just another tree to add to our growing "want" list. Great photos of the fruits by the way - thanks!

Great article, Cat. We have an abundance of persimmon trees in KY, and I am very familiar with the fruit. When it is on the ground it is very easy to slip and slide from one end of the yard to the other! (Which I have done plenty of!)

It is a very tasty fruit, and though I have not cooked with it, it is fun to nibble on.

Thanks for an excellent article.

I wonder if the Persimmon Marketing Board needs an intern?
