Has anyone heard of Prairie Star Persimmon? Any comments? One Green World is selling it but I can't find any other info.
Here is a link that might be useful: Prairie Star
It is a Claypool H118. Jerry Lehman told me it is good, large, nice red color , but a little soft when ripe.
I got an NC-10 from England last fall but it doesn't look to me like it made it. The rootstock and the scion are both shriveled. I was wondering if Prairie Star would be a good replacement as most likely everyone else is sold out. I have an order from OGW that hasn't shipped yet so I could add it. I guess I don't know what rootstock they use at OGW so I'd better find out.
You can call OGW and ask them but I pretty sure it is on D. Virginiana for American persimmon. Kaki sometimes they grafted it on D. Lotus.
Tony, Are you sure it's H-118?
Early Jewel (H-118) - Very Early, Large fruit, Reddish color fruit, Soft when ripe, very high quality fruit. Precocious and a consistent producer, bears seedless fruit south of the Ohio River due to it being a 90 Chromosome persimmon. Out of the Late James Claypool Breeding program.
Container Grown Small Only
Praire Star is a trade name that OGW picked. I emailed Jerry Lehman and asked about it and he told me it was H-118 with the description. I am hoping my H-118 will fruit this year so I can put some input about it.
