Fuyu! Self polinating. Zone 9b here. Tons of production!

I would add Eureka to that list. Mine are from Womacks and they have several varieties and good trees. They also have a good reputation.

They absolutely go dormant! Most of our other fruit trees have blossomed and are leafing out, but the persimmon is late.

1. If you are borderline 9b/10a in Florida I suspect your planting season started in January. Hope you can still find them at your local fruit tree nursery.

2. Assuming you want a non-astringent variety I would have suggested a grafted Giant Fuyu (Hana Fuyu). Bigger fruit. Not sure what the best graft would be in Florida.

3. My persimmons are all still dormant. In fact, the neat thing about them is you pretty much wait until the leaves fall off to harvest.

Another FL mail order I use:
