Our persimmon are beginning to ripen, though personally I don't like them.

Same here John - the birds enjoy them though. 😊

The birds here don't seem to care for them either, they prefer our guavas and pomegranates, which is annoying because those I do like.  >:(

Very strange - this year several of my pomegranates  split open on the tree but the birds don't bother with them....
