Be on the look out for these delicious fruits. Persimmons ripen from late Summer to late Autumn. The persimmon tree usually grows in dry fields or pinelands.
You can pick the half inch to three and a half inch fruit when they are yellow, but don't eat them until they are orange and very soft to the touch as they are very sour unripened. It is rumored that they need a frost to sweeten, but that is untrue according to Florida's Incredible Wild Edibles.
