Episode 127 Persimmon

Since I’ve been kind of out of step, going to the fair and all I thought it appropriate to do a show today about a topical and specific subject: Persimmons.

Tune in today to learn:

*The origins of the proper names for persimmons and the family.

*How the Native Americans gave them their common name and why that came about.

*My experiences with persimmons. Good to eat, hunting aid and imbibition.

*How to grow persimmons.

*Why persimmons get a sour rap.

*How to forecast winter with a persimmon!
