Some years ago I asked someone who was going to Korea to see if they 
could get seed from the most northern persimmons there.  What I got 
turned out to be Diospyros lotus, which is usually used as a rootstock 
for D. Kaki.  From what I found, it is used for fruit there (in Korea). 
  None of the seedlings has started to bear as yet, though.  If they 
ever do, I'll offer seed to try as hardy rootstocks to help in marginal 
Kaki areas.
