    That is an American Persimmon. They are good to eat after a frost has hit them(skin is very bitter before a good frost has hit them). They will turn a yellow to burnt-orange when ripe. Excellent for making preserves to spread over toast or biscuits…or good to eat right off the tree. Deer absolutely love to feast on this fruit also.
