I was hesitant to ask this question, because well it's weird and kind of random, but, here goes:

Does anyone know if there are many persimmon trees here around Des Moines? I am relatively new to Central Iowa so haven't really got a chance to pay attention. I know for a fact they are actually pretty common in Southeastern Iowa, around Keokuk, etc...

These are a beautiful tree all year round and the fruit is very good if picked in season. Well, any kind of information is great, not expecting many replies but I figure it's worth a try!

Thanks in advance....

Default Trees

I worked for the iDNR for a summer and was fortunate to travel the state looking at diffrent parks and state facilities. I also have done a bit of geocaching in and around Des Moines. I have not come across any of these trees in my travels. In the central Des Moines area I believe that it was a predominant area for Oak trees, there is a state park on the West side of town that has some of the oldest trees in the country.

Yea, Oak is pretty much predictable for anywhere in the state, consider it a staple if you will. (It's the state tree too) ... Lee County is the only area in the growing zone for Persimmons I've come to find out, while the rest of the state tends to be colder, so that was why I always saw them where I used to live. Thanks.
