Hi folks,
I just planted many of the seeds collected from my Yates persimmon last fall. Is there anyway to ID females before I have to set them out in their permanent site?

I tried to search my NAFEX posts as I seem to remember someone (was it Jerry?) mentioning that males are the more vigorous seedlings. Is that actionable knowledge, or has it been disproven?
