The leaves have mostly fallen off the persimmon trees (Diospyros virginiana) but some of the trees are still loaded with fruit.

This persimmon tree in the two pictures above is planted along the east wall of the armory building on the Purdue campus. The persimmon tree has a distinctive blocky bark.

This persimmon tree is behind Recitation Hall on the Purdue campus. Most of the fruit has fallen off of this one.

This persimmon tree is at Grant Street near Freehafer Hall.

These pictures were taken November 11, 2009.

There is also a persimmon tree full of fruit in Lafayette along Erie St. near Underwood.
