The hot, dry summer had one benefit. I know where some wild persimmon trees are and yesterday I went to where they grow. I well remember how an unripe persimmon puckers up a mouth, but the fallen fruit I sampled was fully ripe. Not only that, but it was the sweetest, tastiest persimmon I have tasted in my 64 years! This summer's weather produced excellent persimmons, at least!

I have 2 persimmon trees that make great fruit, one by the old pump house, another in a yard that I mow. I tasted the fruit by the pump house, after seeing wild turkeys & my brother-in-law, consuming them in large amounts..... (Not at the same time)
The first one I ate, had dried a bit on the roof of the pump house, and it was very sweet, tasted like dates. So I have been picking them up ever since. But this year very little fruit to be seen.
