Is the seed very flat or normal like normal persimmon seeds? If normal looking, it likely isn't a hybrid and rescue shouldn't be needed.

I have been off e-mail for awhile, sorry for the belated reply.

When I view the kaki seed alongside 'wild' D. virginiana, I see that the kaki seed is of a similar shape, but larger and flatter. The kaki seed is 21 mm long compared to 18 - 19 mm of teh virginiana. Kaki is 14mm wide compaed to 11mm of the virginiana seed
