[NAFEX] Asian Persimmon seedlings

Most years Hanafuyu will have a very few male blooms.  They will be in 
clusters of three small blooms at each node  of the new shoot.
There can be several on the new shoot with no female blooms.
They will usually be sectionalized to one area of the tree and not
ramdomized overall.

They can and do pollinate themselves as well as all other Kaki in
the orchard.

I search each spring for these blooms and and prune them out
since most all customers seek non-seeded Kaki fruit.

Unfortunately, a few of these blooms excaped the pruners this
spring and seeded fruit thru out the orchard.
