I have several tree seedlings growing in my squash patch this spring. Look like they came from fruits I threw in the compost pile. I am thinking they might be osage orange or American persimmon, or pawpaw. Does any one recognize them?
Thanks for the replies. I go for persimmon too. Recently I found a wild American persimmon tree by a road loaded with quarter size fruits. I took a leave and it did look similar, tasted similar too. If I bought the persimmon from grocery store, more likely it was variety like fuyu. Hopefully the seedlings will survive the winter in zone 6.
a variety like fuyu frequently seedless, or nearly so. they are among the varieties (which list also includes some american persimmon selections) that fairly reliably fruit without pollination, and make a seedless fruit when doing so.
