Persimmon trees are an interesting native tree that have a multitude of benefits and uses. They produce a sweet, soft, orange fruit in the fall that can be eaten right off the tree, or used in jams, pies, syrups, etc. The wood is extremely hard and is commonly used in golf clubs, billiard cues and show heels. Fruit is known to stay on the tree well into winter. Native to the northeast US.
