- Best Days & Calendars
Remove the seeds from a locally grown persimmon and soak them in hot water for about an hour to soften. Gently pry apart the seed’s outer shell (you can use your teeth or a sharp blade —just be careful!) to reveal the shape inside. According to folklore, the majority of the shapes you see determine the winter forecast for your area (fork = mild, spoon = heavy snow, knife = very cold).
