Good evening Cliff,

I did have Mood Indigo, it does exist. It did fruit and I was not impressed
and I don't remember for sure where I got it from, but I believe it was from
a southern grower. As I recall I suspected it was a 60 chromosome.  Sorry I
can't be of more help, if I recall my source I'll let you know. In sitting
here thinking about it, there was a NAFEX member from North Carolina, it
wasn't AJ Bullard. The same individual also found and released 2 persimmons
from his area that he was high on and they likewise didn't perform well
here. I believe he named one after a restaurant in front of which the one
variety was growing. I'll admit I did not have been grafted in a good
location. His article on the 2 persimmons would've been in Pomona maybe 15
years ago. 

If I remember this in the morning maybe my memory will be working better and
I'll recall his name.  I cannot picture him in my mind and I haven't seen
him at a NAFEX meeting in many years and he may have passed away.  He was an
older gentleman.

Why don't you put out a request on the NAFEX chat  Benny might know or it
could be found.
