Can dogs eat persimmons?

Persimmons are not dangerous to dogs because they are a non-citric fruit. But persimmon seeds (which are fairly rare) can cause intestinal blockage, especially in smaller dogs. For larger dogs (60 lbs+) then the seeds are not a problem. I have a Rottweiler and she eats several persimmons each day from our back yard where we have at least 6 very large persimmon trees.
