Oh oh--another species to think about planting. Anyone aware of problems with trying persimmon in Western Wisconsin?

Persimmon survives and fruits in an area west of Madison, WI that's
seen -40F. I saw trees that were 25ft tall with an 8 inch bole there.
While I can't imagine that you could compete with southern trees in a
commecial market, if you are a hobbyist tree farmer/woodcarver it certainly
would be fun to try seedling persimmons. Ken Asmus at Oikos sells seedlings
from early fruiting/northern origin trees. I'm sure that others do, too.
Take a walk on the wild side!
