Jerry,
Thanks for sharing your kaki trials.  You are fruiting Rosseyanka, a kaki
hybrid.  How does its flavor compare to pure kakis?  Could this be sold
commercially?  How do Asians used to pure kakis respond to Rosseyanka?
Would it sell in markets, that is does it have similar shipping and storage
traits as pure kaki?

Does Rosseyanka have traits that make it less susceptible to KSD?
Does Rosseyanka do a better job of surviving the -10 winter lows, the later
spring freezes and fluctuating temps, or both?
Does Rosseyanka break dormancy later than the kakis you've fruited?
Are the buds more cold hardy than pure kaki, either dormant or after
budbreak?

 Cliff England sells another hybrid (Kent?).  Have you tried to grow or
tasted this?
Any other hybrids you know of, with similar cold-hardiness to Rosseyanka?
Thanks,
Richard
