Persimmon Recipes
For 59 years the small town of Mitchell, Indiana, has celebrated the native persimmon with an annual festival. Naturally, a part of the festival is a persimmon pudding contest. To learn some of the lore of this Midwestern tradition, as well as the recipe for the 2004 persimmon pudding contest winner, visit the 59th Annual Mitchell Persimmon Festival Web site. For recipes that use our native persimmons, such as cakes, pies, cookies, and jam, go to the Persimmon Cookbook site.

More on Persimmons
Persimmons (Kaki) From Seed to Supper, by Jack W. Hazelton (Jack's Bookshelf, 2000; $9.95), discusses both native persimmons as well as the tender types from other parts of the world. Besides detailed information on choosing, planting, and growing the various types of persimmons, there is also an extensive recipe collection. This book is part of a series on how to grow and use various fruits and vegetables.
