Thanks, Jerry; you're correct, as usual.

I agree, if I were looking to plant a 'shade' tree
that'll reach 30 ft in short order - but still be
there for my grandkids, I'd probably be looking at
something more like a bur oak or a pecan - and the
bur oak may be the best best bet for the site Jay's got.

Nikita's Gift, aka Rosseyanka, is a nice one.  Growth
rate here has been comparable to most D.v. grafts. 
Fruits are larger than most any D.v.; ripen late and
hang well on the tree, necessitating hand-removal
once winter freezes arrive.

Dear Group,

I'd like to correct an error in the above statement.
 Do not feel bad Lucky, I've made the same error,
Nikita's  Gift is Nikitskaya Bordovaya. Rosseyanka is
Russian beauty. Both Nikita's Gift and Russian Beauty
are trademarks of One Green World Nursery in Oregon. 

Nikitskaya Bordovaya is not much more winter hardy
than kaki while Rosseyanka has withstood 30 below
zero here and zone 5b.
