American Persimmon is another edible that can be grown in much of the US surviving in minimum temperatures of -20 degrees. Persimmons are faster growing large trees that bear an orange size fruit. Make sure to plant several as you will need both male and female plants to actually get fruit.
American Persimmons are astringent meaning they will pucker up your mouth if you eat them right off the tree. They need to blet which is a fancy word for sitting them on your counter for a few weeks until they get soft and mushy.
Once mature Persimmon trees are heavy bearers and may need to be thinned or branches braced to avoid breaking. American Persimmons fruit late in the season, usually September to December. They make a mouthwatering edible as well as having many medicinal uses as well.
