Looks like its time to buy/obtain a good fruit picking ladder. Certainly there's one around there somewhere, but I'd want to make sure its not rotten, falling through a fruit tree sucks.

got one of those ladders [metal] that converts into like 5 different set-ups,
extension , step, even scaffolding if you add the boards.
should be ok if a bit heavy.

An ATV or pickup with a long rope could shake a few loose.

Persimmon Pudding From Indiana Outdoors by Bill Scifres

2 cups persimmon pulp
2 cups sugar (granulated)
2 cups milk
2 cups flour
3/4 stick butter or margarine
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:
Melt butter and stir into pulp. Stir in flour, sugar, cinnamon in that order and mix well. Pour into 9- by 13-inch cake pan and bake for one hour in 350 degree preheated oven. Serve with whipped cream or sugar sauce. This pudding may be cut into squares and eaten with the hands if one doesn't mind licking his fingers.

persimmons have a pithy taste when young that dries my mouth out so much, almost nothing works to get rid of it. At least here in W.Va, persimmons are picked starting after the first frost, and can be picked until after first snow. I make wine from them that is fantastic! Too late for Paw paws here. I missed picking alot this year. (my girlfriend developed an allergic reaction -hives- to paw paws between last winter and this fall, and won't help me pick any) Even though the fruit have fallen, now is a good time to try and find more stands of the trees, since they seem to hold onto leaves a little longer than other trees.
I would really like to utilize my land more efficiently, and harvest more of its renewable resources ( huckleberries, blackberries, black raspberries, paw paws, black walnuts, hickory nuts) I just need more time and canning jars....

I have probably close to 100 persimmon trees on my property. When they ripen and fall, the ferment, and the deer get drunk off their asses! Ever see a drunk whitetale?

I will try to video it on night. They tend to fall over or attack fences. I feel bad for them, thinking about sending them to detox!:johnny:
