Texas Persimmon
Ebenaceae Diospyros texana

The Mexican or Texas persimmon is a shrub or small tree. It has gray bark that peels as it gets older. The fruit ripens in late summer. It is dark purple or black then ripened. It may be eaten but has many seeds. Wildlife usually take advantage of this food source. Often the leaves linger on the tree during the winter.
