Before we talk about the persimmon seed as a harbinger of winter, I just want to know one thing: Who was the first person to open a persimmon seed? Okay, two things: WHY?!
It’s a good bet no one has those answers, so let’s proceed.
On my various road trips this fall I’ve noticed an abundance of persimmons. A trip to the ranch this weekend brought up the discussion about the old-timers method of predicting winter weather patterns by what the seed holds within.
I plucked some of the small ripe fruit, brought them home and proceeded to open a seed for myself. I’d never done this. Surprisingly, neither had my Dad. So he didn’t know to warn me I’d need my McGyver husband to help.
There are no posts. Why not be the first to have your say?
