Does the Hybrid Rosseyanka need pollination to produce fruit, and if it does would itÂs pollination needs be best served by American persimmon Diospyros Virginiana or Asian Kaki persimmon. NikitaÂs Gift is reportedly an offspring of Rosseyanka crossed back to Kaki, so I guess that states a Kaki would at least be a possibility, but that cross of Virginiana X Kaki doesnÂt seem to have been duplicated very easily beyond the Russian/Ukraine efforts that produced Rosseyanka and NikitaÂs Gift. Is anyone aware of what they did for the successful cross where other efforts did not succeed, or are there actually more Hybrids than I am aware. I have seen others discussed as hybrids, but never with the certainty that these 2 seem accepted. Thanks for input and thoughts.
