Which should I give the most sun priority?

I have an area that gets early morning shade due to a neighbor's pine. I'm planting my last row of trees and need to know which would tolerate the shade most: Asian pear (Hosui, Okolo), jujube (Shan Xi Li, Xu Zhou), or persimmon (Rosseyanka, NC 10)?

Sun loving jujube then persimmon, and lastly Asian pear. In that order, I hope that will help you to choose the right spot.

Here Asian pear requires most sun for high quality. But your light is more intense and you have fewer cool rainy days during growing season so I don't know.

They will all do well with just early morning shade. So I'd base the decision on something else like height, looks, etc.

Okay, I was thinking the jujube needed most sun but just wanted to make sure. I will plant the persimmons so my neighbors have something to look at in the fall besides my rather peculiar, nontraditional back yard.
