Grew a persimmon from a tree I passed in coastal VA. Dang thing produced a lot of fruit but it was awful. Cut tree down but missed it so bad that I let the sprigs from the roots grow and now have another one. It is a beautiful tree with rich dark green color and the birds love it.

I had a great crop of persimmons this yr, they taste awful out of hand, but make great cakes and breads. In fall leaves turn bright orange and red-beautiful!!

I have some Paw Paw seed I want to germinate for growing next spring. These seeds were taken from a tree grown in Beaver County. I want to grow something that is indigenous to Western Pennsylvania. Western PA. is unique in many ways and not being from this area I want to learn more about the history and folklore.
