Thanks for the heads-up, Tony. He also has some great kakis, asian pears, pawpaws, jujubes, nuts, etc.

Cliff is going to send me some of his persimmon hybrids from the Rossyanka male crosses for a cold hardy trial here in Omaha. At his place in KY, the temp will not drop to -15 to-20F.

His DL-1-1 cross tastes great!! It has rosseyenka blood in it but larger (rosseyenka is tiny, not sayin DL is large, just large-er maybe 2x size to put in roughly great wall category size) and tastes just awesome. I think I do like rosseyenka flavor in general tho so I may be partial to these rosseyenka hybrids.

offtopic but can persimmon get bacterial canker...? i feel like my rosseyenka got somethin canker-esque goin on this year...

So far I have not seen any bacterial canker on my Rosseyanka hybrid persimmon. Will keep an eye on it. My Nikita's Gift is flawless. The fruits are turning orange color now. I am starting to really like this hybrid.
