[NAFEX] Persimmon Seed Dormancy Anomaly

I have noticed that about 1% of the fresh persimmon seeds I have are sprouting with no stratification. I thought they would need at least 90 days worth.

Anyone know if this is normal?

Would there be any disadvantage or even advantage to isolating these individuals for any purpose?

Would these particular seedlings be good for grafting later on?

Perhaps if they were bred together a line of persimmons could be bred whose seeds would need no stratification at all?
