WELCOME to Lawrence County, Indiana


PersimParadeLOW.jpgEvery year in mid-September, the city of Mitchell hosts the Persimmon Festival, fun-filled days paying tribute to the unique locally-grown fruit.

A persimmon is a plum-sized fruit that has an orange color with a unique flavor similar to pumpkin. Persimmon pudding is a baked pudding dessert with the texture of gingerbread. It is usually served in squares with a dollop of whipped cream.

Persimmon_Pudding.jpgThe persimmon pudding contest is one of the favorite events at the Persimmon Festival. Persimmon pulpĀ is readily available from local residents and farmers' markets during the fall months.
