Persimmon Paradise!

In class we read Dear Juno.  Juno's grandmother was sitting under a persimmon tree in Korea.  We looked up persimmons to see what they look like.  That's when I saw the fruit and thought they look like a tree that I have in my back yard.

The persimmon tree is cool to have in my yard. When the fruit is ripe, it drops down to the grass. This can get pretty messy. My dad and I built a persimmon trap to catch all the falling fruit. It works good!

Our persimmon tree is tall and it is leaning over my fort. It looks weird. Ewwwww.....for the first time I tasted a persimmon, and they taste not so great!

Ms. Stanton cut one of the persimmons in half.  It was really hard to cut open.  The seeds were in a flower shape inside. 

The persimmon tree is the size of double my fort!

Look at all that fruit!

This is the persimmon trap.  The fruit goes down the hole...

They go through the hole into the bucket.

The pattern of the seeds kind of looks like a sunflower.
