Wink Is it safe to feed Persimmons?

I was wondering if it is safe to feed my Alexandrines/conure persimmons?
We have a lot growing down our driveway and nobody in my household likes to eat them.

Thanks

From what I found, nope, they can be toxic.

Re: Is it safe to feed Persimmons?

I also looked around and some sites say it's safe, so I wasn't too sure.

Yeah. I would err on the side of caution. Ive read that some people feed their birds avocado too, but I wouldnt risk it.

Re: Is it safe to feed Persimmons?

Unripe persimmons pucker your lips. I believe it's the alum. Ripe ones are squishy, and sweet as all get out, and great under cream.

Re: Is it safe to feed Persimmons?

This site says that only unripe persimmons are bad, but ripe is okay: fruitandveg

For the record, this is the first I've heard about persimmons. I fed some to Puck when ours were in season, and he was fine.

Re: Is it safe to feed Persimmons?

Wild birds and animals eat them which is usually a good sign.
