You know, I have maybe a dozen persimmon trees on my property. None are large. HOWEVER, of the hog poop I find and examine, there is a high probability it will have acorns (1000s and 1000s of oaks on the property) and/or persimmon seeds. They do love persimmons.

I'll take your word about hogs liking persimmons DNS but I can assure you deer love them too. There are two persimmon trees(one large, the other smaller) here in the yard and when they start dropping, the deer put on quit a show. Have counted as many as nine deer under the larger of the two.

Have never seen this for myself but a buddy of mine swears deer love hedge apples as well.
