I'm glad you liked them, that was an after thought walking past the tree after getting the cuttings.

I hope those cuttings take for you, Good Luck with them.

I've been making a wine called Dragon Blood and it's a fast drinking hooch type. I also made 3 gallons of 3/4 cranberry and 1/4 concord grape flavored with Jim Beam to give it an oak flavor. This stuff need to age to mellow the alcohol but it's really good now, reminds me of a Port. I step fed the sugar and restarted fermentation so I'm guessing it's about 17% alcohol by volume.

I'm getting ready to invest in a couple white oak stave bourbon barrels... Anybody from Kentucky know where I can get them? I'd love to drive down and pick a few of them up!

I remember the first persimmon that I ate. It was growing in the Ozarks in Arkansas. I was 11 years old and had never heard of persimmons. It was far from ripe, and to equate it - it was like taking a bite of alum. Ripe persimmons taste good.

LOL! We get them in supermarkets, as persimmons do not grow locally in our climate. There are several sub-species / varieties, some are edible and even delicious before their soft prime, while others... well, not so
Before you bite in, you never know which variety it is.

Correction: There is a cultivar / variety called 'Sharon' which comes from Israel, and it has square-ish type of fruit. That one is safe to eat at any stage of its ripeness (provided the right color is there of course)

Fuyu persimmons are common here and are also edible (and good!) when they are firm.
