I noticed today that I have 4 that are loaded. It looks like they are still green but it won't be long and it just so happens that they are about 60yds from my food plot. I think I know where I am going to place my stand tomorrow.

I haven't found persimmons or white oaks yet but the reds are loaded. The main problem with them are that they generally hold their fruit until later into the season so they won't be worth a flip hunting over during archery.

Just a thought on the persimmon seeds. If you want to plant a bunch of seeds you might be able to stratefy them much like they do ginseng seed. In part because of their coating they have an 18 month germination. To accomplish this dig a hole a little deeper than a 5 gallon bucket. Drill drain holes in the bottom of the bucket. Alternate layers of sand and seed until full. Put the cover on the bucket and bury it in the hole. Dig it up the following Fall and plant. If they're like genseng they'll sprout the following spring.

I saw a tree loaded with them yesterday. The branches were weighted down and some were starting to drop. Too bad that it was in my in-laws backyard in town.

I haven't seen any persimmons on our place either. If you have a persimmon tree in a field, you can let a small area around the tree grow up. We did this at home and now we have about a dozen in one spot. The coons and possums will do the work fertilizing right off the branch. When your young trees come up in a few years go back in and thin out the trees that are not persimmons. I believe it takes about 7-8 years for a persimmon to start producing fruit.
