February 8 - The Persimmon Tree - Diospyros virginiana

The Persimmon Tree in Winter
This  Persimmon Tree lives at the Asheville Botanical Gardens; it lives near the spring house.  ashevillebotanicalgardens.org

I still have not tasted a persimmon that was ripe and delicious.  I will be following this tree and search for other persimmons at the Botanical Gardens.  Maybe I can taste one this coming fall.

  1. I had a fun experiment with a persimmons I planted this last fall....and the fruit was good. I can't wait until more are produced on the tree. It was a lot of fun.
