Diospyros virginiana
Persimmon

Persimmon fruits from native trees ripen after frost, transitioning from light green hard fruits to soft, yellow-orange fruits that have large seeds and are prized by wildlife. Some fruits may persist on the trees into late Autumn or even early Winter. Trees are generally dioecious (male and female flowers on separate trees, resulting in "sterile" and "bearing" trees, so to speak), but may be monoecious in some cases (separate male and female flowers on the same tree).
