I picked a persimmon and opened the seed and saw that the kernel was spoon-shaped (or is that knife-shaped?) so it looks like it will be lots of heavy, wet snow or icy winds for us here in Arkansas.
Have you checked for your area?
According to folklore, you can predict the weather with a persimmon seed:
If the kernel is spoon-shaped, lots of heavy, wet snow will fall. Spoon = shovel
If it is fork-shaped, you can expect powdery, light snow and a mild winter.
If the kernel is knife-shaped, expect to be “cut” by icy, cutting winds.
