I check my Persimmon SeedsI check my Persimmon Seeds every year. Last year (2012) I got a Knife and a Spoon within several seeds, checking three seeds. It turned out winter was true to the tales, Bitterly Cold with Heavy Wet Snow.. This storm caused my power to go out for many days. Me and my dogs almost froze to death, until a friend and her brother came to get all of us in his 4WD. That was a blessing. I opened two Persimmon Seeds this morning (August 28th, 2013), right off the tree, with one being ripe and the other green. Both Seeds had spoons. Looks like we are going to have another Heavy Wet Snow for this years winter in Mayflower, Arkansas.
