Richard,

What did you do with that one seed? Since Rosseyanka is a hybrid with very
low fertility, a good seed is rare. Nakitas Gift is a seedling of Rosseyanka
that is probably a backcross to kaki persimmon.

I have Giombo, and a branch broke from the weight of the fruit a few weeks
ago, but it is still attached and alive. I plan to prune it soon, so I can
take quite a few cuttings. I also have Chocolate and Hachiya. Chocolate
ripened earliest and also produced a lot of male flowers. All of the
Chocolate fruits had seeds, most of the Hachiyas had some seeds, but the
Giombos had few, if any seeds. Giombo was the last to ripen, and about 50%
of the fruits did not ripen.

Hal
