Wild persimmons against a background of ceder trees with whom they share rootspace. The natives used to use the persimmons as one of the ingredients of pemmican. Nowadays, they are eaten by the wildlife including the coyotes. It is said that you can predict the heavyness of the snowfall by taking one of the seeds of that years crop and splitting it. In the middle there will be a white shape that is either shovel-shaped or like a fork. One is a sign of heavy snow and the other means a light winter. I have heard the tale told both ways and have read no scientific studies that have definitively stated which is what. So I leave it to you, find a persimmon, split the seed and wait for winter.
