Pucker up

Orange plop

Orange plop

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.
