My Persimon comeback--???

pezzuti9(z5 PA)June 19, 2014

I posted earlier concerning a persimmon tree that froze out this year. I believe I have better photos to show you.
I don't remember what the name of the tree was. I o remember it was the type persimmon one can eat while still hard.

It was into it's 4th year. What I would like to know if any of you can tell by looking at the attached photos. Is it possible if I let this survive that I may end up with the grafted variety I wanted. What do you guys think?
More info on the photos!!!

Those 2 branches on the lower part the tree look like a native persimmon rootstock. Their leaves had some reddish color.

Now this photo showed the Kaki leaves. I would rub off all the shoots below the Kaki shoot and pulled out all of the native root suckers on the ground near the tree because you want all the energy to go to your Kaki graft.
