Fruits in diet

I have GSD puppy 6months healthy and very energetic, i give him fruits from time to time such as bananas, apples, blueberries, but not Grapes i know its not good for them, the only thing i couldn't find out is it ok for them to eat persimmons since i have persimmon tree in backyard and he will just pick some up from ground end eat it sometime. I wouldn't worry that much if didn't have soft stool also sometime so i'm wondering is it because of persimmons or something else
Any advise ?
Also you can list all fruits that are recommended and good for our best friends, and ones that are not god for them as well.

No grapes and if peaches or apples are given, no seeds or pit(both are toxic). I just cut up a watermelon for them and me for later. I have mulberries in the yard and they all eat them. Bananas, blueberries, blackberries, and melons.

Everything I can find mentions the seeds:


Signs of cyanide toxicity you will observe in your dog include dilated pupils, apprehension, difficulty breathing, hyperventilation, and shock.

Persimmon seeds can cause inflammation of the dog's intestine causing enteritis. In this case, your dog will have diarrhea and possibly a higher temperature.

Additionally, pits and seeds can cause intestinal obstruction. Signs of intestinal obstruction may include anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, lethargy, no appetite, swollen abdomen, fever, dehydration, and shock.
