Default Is this a persimmon?

Just cut this tree out form between a few oaks… then saw the fruit!

Yep, OP just killed the golden goose. Persimmons are big time magnets for deer

yes, anybody ever make jelly or margaritas out of them?

I've got one that is normally 8 foot tall, this year the dang thing is almost laying on the ground because of the weight of the fruit. Its been so wet back there that I'm afraid they are all going to drop before I can save any.

yeah these are mostly all seed, and the skin is pretty tough. They have good flavor but are a pain to eat. But they will disappear in a night once they turn black and all the animals and birds find them. I love finding new bushes growing, anything to help the turkeys

I was gonna say don’t the persimmons in East TX typically get ripe in October/November?

yeah they do, thats why they are good to deer hunt over. Our rain amounts and cool months this summer have been really weird. I dont know if that has had an effect on the native brush as far as seeding goes. I've got persimmon bushes that have already dropped their fruit over a month ago and other bushes that still have green fruit that is only half grown. I dont know if they can produce multiple crops a year or if some are just farther behind.

I have several consistent producers on my place in Polk Cty. While the fruits do attract all kinds of critters, it seems as if by Oct 16th the fruits are gone. Thread has me wondering what fruit looks like this year. Will check in am.

I can tell you it definitely seems to have affected the oaks/acorn crop. What few acorns there are are tiny, like where they should’ve been in late May/early June. I’m sure the weathers got a bunch of plants and treed bass-ackwards right now.

I was on a lease in San Saba a few years ago with some out of state transplants who had moved to North Texas, bought lots of stuff at Cabelas, and added me to their new lease to reduce their cost. While walking with one of the guys in the pasture one day, he pointed to a persimmon bush and said "What is that?" I replied "You're not from around here are you?"

Persimmons on my place in Polk County are looking abundant. Fruit is developing well. Looks like some of the oaks will produce big as well. The feeder guys are going to be crying this Fall.
