American Persimmon Diospyros virginiana-This is a common native persimmon species found throughout the eastern United States. The fruit makes delicious persimmon bread, cookies, cake, and pudding once mushy ripe, but is inedible (too astringent) prior to being mushy ripe. It can also be fermented into persimmon beer. Yum! I hope you found some perfectly ripe fruit to eat! Not ripe = not good
