  One way to test this virus theory would be to raise a Kaki from seed and plant it on its own roots in a KSD prone area isolated from other Kaki and Persimmons.  My understanding is that plant viruses aren't passed from mother to seed.  Own root and isolated would keep it virus free.  Then it's just a matter of waiting to see what happens - if anything.  For comparison, other seedlings from the same mother could be grafted to Persimmon rootstock and grown in isolation.

My personal beleif is KSD is a virus of which our native trees are immune. I know of no one in the southeast, except Floridians, who have not had trees to die of KSD.
