The condition is called a bezoar. It's real. It's a concretion of
skins and seeds, though you have to eat a LOT of them. I've heard it's
most common among hunters who eat wild persimmons while they are in the
woods and include a lot of partially ripe ones.

Somehow remember being told that eating a lot of unpeeled persimmons
can cause a condition where the skins can collect in the bowel. Is this
true? and what is this condition called?
Also has anyone even made tea out of the leaves? If so when is the
best time to use them?
