1 Persimmon Seed Buttons on Mon May 31, 2010 11:47 pm

I "harvested" some persimmons and will experiment. First challenge, getting the persimmon goo off the seeds. I sucked off what I could as they were still a might bit tart. Next challenge will be building a jig to hold the dear darlings in the drill press.


I now have approx 40 seeds drying. the trick so far seems to be getting only the truly ripe fruits. the seeds don't exactly slip out of the membrane, but they do come out much easier. My best guess is that women or children sucked the flavorful fruit membrane off of the seeds. I did that with some, but with others I tried washing it off in the first few hours after picking....don't bother. After a few days in the fridge, it came off much nicer.


The seeds are drilled and now sewn on a shirt. I am testing to see how fragile they will be and how well they stand up to wear.

Cool. Do you have pictures?
