We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
Hi JJ, I'll have to research the differences, and will let you know. Thanks for writing. I was just re reading your Morning Glory article yesterday, I love it, and would really love to see those that are yellow and orange.
I'll get back with you on the differences of the trees.
Let me know if you want some seeds of the orange and yellow MG. I remember that when I lived in Austin we had a lot of parsimmon to eat in December but as far as I remember they were the same we get in Europe and here, rather large fruits while the ones in the article looks like plum size.
JJ, I don't know a thing about D.dygina, but the d.kaki is much larger than what we have here, and seems to be sweeter, not as astringent when unripe. That isn't much of an answer, but it is all I know of the differences.
And I would love to have orange and yellow seeds, thank you, but I doubt they could be shipped from there.
I'll continue to see what I can find different about the persimmon varieties, and let you know if something new is found.
D.digina produces a fruit ressembling D.kaki but instead of being orange it is dark green and the ripe flesh is black and sticky, locals call it 'caca poule' which is 'hen pooh'...
Why couldn't I ship seeds to you? I send them worldwide, so it they can reach South-Africa or Pakistant they will reach you for sure!
Yes, nice day today.
