THE MISSOURI DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION ENCOURAGES YOU TO DISCOVER NATURE...HERE'S ONE IDEA!

AS YOU HEAD TO THE WOODS THIS FALL, TAKE NOTICE OF THOSE BRIGHT ORANGE FRUITS HANGING FROM ALLIGATOR-SKINNEDTREES.

THEY ARE PERSIMMON TREES, AND PROVIDE A SWEET SUMMER FINALE IN THEIR FALL-RIPENING FRUITS.

SOME MISSOURIANS EVEN CLAIM YOU CAN TELL HOW COLD THE WINTER WILL BE BY SPLITTING OPEN A PERSIMMON SEED. IF THE INSIDE LOOKS LIKE A KNIFE, EXPECT FRIGID WINDS THAT WILL CUT LIKE A BLADE. A SPOON PREDICTS PLENTY OF SNOW TO SHOVEL AND IF YOU FIND A FORK, PLAN ON A MILD WINTER.

THE MOST COMMON VARIETY IN MISSOURI RIPENS WHEN THE TEMPERATURES BEGIN TO DROP IN THE FALL.

WAIT TO PICK THE FRUIT UNTIL AFTER THE FIRST FROST WHEN IT IS SOFT, ALMOST MUSHY. IF YOU EVER EAT AN UNRIPE PERSIMMON, YOU WILL
KNOW IT.

YOU CAN USE THE PULP TO MAKE CAKES, BREADS,COOKIES, PUDDINGS AND PIES.
