Used by American Indians, African Americans and early European settlers, wild Persimmons are a distinctively American fruit. Although currently the greatest abundance of trees are found along the Mississippi River Valley, the native Persimmon's range extends from Connecticut to Florida, and as far west as Kansas and Texas. The fruits are a burnt orange color and often develop a bluish haze after the first frost. Wild Persimmons have a unique, succulent flesh that can be used for both savory and sweet dishes, including breads, pies, ice cream, candies and sauces.
