A client called me. She said she thinks her persimmon may be emitting a horrific odor. She called the plumber to check the sewer lines, called some pest people to see if there was anything dead around, and now she's at wits end and thinks the odor may be coming from her healthy looking persimmon tree. I am kind of skeptical. Are there any diseases could be causing this odor? Perhaps something in an early stage that would not yet have visible symptoms?
