According to folklore
According to folklore, you can predict winter weather with a persimmon seed. If the kernel is spoon-shaped, get the shovel ready! Look at the shape of the kernel inside. If the kernel is spoon-shaped, expect plenty of snow to shovel. If its a fork-shaped, plan on a mild winter with powdery, light snow. If the kernel is knife-shaped, expect frigid winds that will “cut” like a blade. Well, I have a friend and 3 persimmons which were cut open and all three were the same. The persimmons were grown in Rising Star and they predict frigid winds that will cut like a blade. Yes, it was the knife shape.
