Pap,

Jerry Lehman WS8-10, 100-46,100-47, U-20A (Celebrity).
Prok, Knightville, and Cliff England Wonderful. These guys as big or even bigger than Greatwall Asian Persimmon.

Pap,

I forgot that Jerry also likes Lena (sweet with nice red blush), and H-120 over H-118. Hopefully, my Lena & H-120 will fruit next year.

I just planted a 'lena' that I got from Englands orchard. I am very excited about growing this very old variety. It is supposed to have the reddish flesh compared to most and an excellent flavor. Yates is the largest fruited American that I grow with good flavor. I have had a few with slightly larger fruit but poor quality.

There should be some selections from the asian-american crosses showing up by now. By any chance, are any of the above from this background?
