Weird fruit

Asked August 23, 2015, 6:29 PM EDT

I have this tree in my yard and I have been seing large cherry-sized balls on the tree. They are not in groups just scatters around and today I picked one off and I saw a ripe one in the floor. It is kind of apricot colored or plum colored. It smells fruity but i can't remember what it smells like. It's certainly fleshy like a grape. But the green ones are rock hard

The fruit is an American persimmon (Diospyros virginiana). Although the fruit is edible, it is quite astringent and bitter to taste.
