Its thick, glossy leaves are dark green in the summer and turn to shades of reddish-purple in the fall. In the late spring, white fragrant bell-shaped flowers give the common persimmon tree a stunning display. Delicate male and female persimmon flowers grow on separate trees, and both are essential for adequate fruit production. Ripe fruit will have a pinkish orange tint with a frosted appearance. Persimmon fruit is sweet with high sugar content, making it ideal for many deserts such as sherbet, custards, pudding, and cake. Native Americans used to harvest and store dried persimmon fruit. Avoid eating before ripe. Need male tree to pollinate. Male trees do not produce fruit.
