Well,  I can't speak for most, however, here in Clarksville roughly 
November is a great time to pick.  Usually I wait till after a couple of 
frost for the fruit to ripen up.
In Claremore Oklahoma, were my family currently picks tons of persimmons 
we picked them around the same time.  If you were up in the mountains, 
in the Ozarks I would think it's roughly the same time, 
October-November.  I have picked and eaten as late as January, but you 
will have to really reach for them, as the deer like to strip off the 
lower ones.  Possums will devour them as well.
