According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the shape of a developing persimmon seed can indicate how harsh the winter might be. If the seed is spoon shaped, it is said that the winter will bring heavy snowfall. A fork shaped seed will likely mean light powdery snow. Knife shaped seed is believed to mean there will be cold, cutting winds.
These seeds were collected locally at our last Super Soccer Saturday game this year, and after a quick internet search we determined they are persimmon seeds. RA Junior Master Gardener students soaked them for 2 days then cut them open to expose the seed forming inside.
