American Persimmon (Diospyros virginiana)

  • I'm a native of NY.

    I am dioecious, so we need a male and female living near each other for us to bear fruit. 

    My fruit is eaten by humans and other animals like birds, opossums, raccoons and deer.

    My fruit is very astringent until they ripen fully. People often make syrups, jellies, ice-cream and pie from my ripe fruit.
