Tall tree (25′) with 4 to 5in long green leaves and 2in wide. Tree has bark like a oak tree just smoother. Bears berry like fruit that is green on plant and turns bluish purple when it falls off. Big flat and round seeds in fruit/berry. When on the plant the berry has four pointy, short leaves (like a crown).

    I can’t see the calyx (?) “four pointy, short leaves (like a crown)” of the fruits clearly. I’m guessing a type of persimmon (Diospyros)? If this is persimmon I can’t tell which one this is. And if this was self-planted then it could be the native American persimmon (D. virginia). Check out these included links for the American persimmon. Again I’m only guessing. If this isn’t persimmon, please resubmit with photos of the calyx, seeds, inside of the cut fruit, and closeup of the tree trunk (bark). Thank you and best wishes!
