Sucker growth on persimmon?

sunnyinsandiego(USDA 9/Sunset 20)October 14, 2013

Husband picked up a persimmon from the nursery yesterday, and when it got home, it seemed to me that the 'healthy growth' he was so excited about might be sucker growth from the rootstock (sorry, hubby). Can someone more knowledgeable than me confirm? I know all apples are typically grafted onto rootstock but for some reason there doesn't seem to be as much information on persimmon trees. If it matters, it's a Fuyu. Thank you!

The growth at the bottom is probably from the rootstock and in any case should be removed now.

I agree with creekweb. My Fuyu does not sucker.
