FWIW...If anyone has access to a persimmon tree, they are ripe NOW!
I'm in northern Alabama, ROLL TIDE!!!, and I imagine the more northern latitudes will be following along day-by-day.
I know that grapes, apples, pears, muscadines, scuppernongs, etc., are all comming in, too!
But, if you have an empty primary right now, you might want to consider persimmons.
For those who have yet to try a fully ripe one, they are very sweet, and have kind of a butterscotch flavor to them.
Tradition says to wait until after the first frost to harvest them. But, in my neck of the woods, they will be gone by then!
