About the size of a cherry tomato, this Common persimmon (Diospyrus virginiana
) was nestled among the leaf litter along the path between the park and the library.
Falling from what seems like an inordinately high canopy (guessing 50-60 feet up), it’s a wonder any of them survive intact. Then too, the deer should be gobbling up whatever drops, but perhaps these are still a bit too bitter for their taste.
