PERSIMMON--WINTER PREDICTION

According to folklore (which means it hasn't been scientific proven, or disproved), the severity of approaching winter can be cutting open a persimmon seed and looking at the shape of the kernel inside. Hold the seed carefully with a pair of needled-nose pliers and use a paring knife to slice it open.

If the kernel is spoon-shaped, lots of heavy, wet snow is forecasted.

If the kernel is fork-shaped, powdery light snow and a mild winter is predicted.

If the kernel is knife-shaped, bitter icy cutting winds for next few months will occur.

It is recommended to cut at least ten seeds to determine the outcome of the kernel shape.
 

PERSIMMONS--RIPE

Persimmons are native to the orient, as well as the United States, depending on the type. Persimmons are ripe when slightly soft and give slightly when gently squeezed.

Choose deep, rich orange fruit that have a lacquer-like gleam to the skin.

Hard persimmons are sour and considered "pucker fruit."

Ripen immature fruit by placing in a paper bag with an apple or banana for several days.
