    YEah I take that back on GN. Its a late ripener even here in 7a Long Island. And its not that cold tolerant either. Ive heard IZbat an Naj is cold tolerant and possibly Hative dargenuil .

    SD is interesting in particular to me because it was a favorite of someone in MA who most likely kept at least of some of their massive collection in pots and in grounded (speculation but fits my mediocre logic lol). But I haven't read anything about his culture/location for SD. I have two small trees (small in part because they were the hardest/longest to root by far of any type I have tried), and one is on the definite in-ground list for next year. However, I will be protecting it so I (HOPEFULLY) will not be trialing for fruit from die back. I am thinking about doing the same with one of my Gen Neros, but I admit that I concerned about how late it ripens especially when heavily pruned back as I will do for protection

    Found a tool for calculating growing degree days for a period of up to two months in any location but data is only starting from year 2020. It also gives a cumulative number of GDD from the start of that year up until the selected day. I think it is a useful tool, but I am not certain about how accurate it is (not sure if it based on real temperature data or maybe temperature from models?) but sharing so that others could try it, use it, maybe proof it (or not). https://www.greencast.co.uk/growing-degree-days

    I have had Salem White, another Bass introduction, in ground for 3 winters, and it is finally proving itself with great growth and earlier production. A honey type fig. Will try to report back on time of ripening - the past two years it did not start producing as early as this one.

    Niagara Black, on the other hand, has been late to put on figs after die back for the past two years and I may not see ripe figs for the second year in a row.

    Excellent and helpful list! Thankyou Kelby. But where is green Michurinska?? Could Red Lebanese BV and Sangue Dolce and Genovese Nero af /I258 make this list I wonder. I would like to add Hardy New Jersey to that list. It was found in ground at an abandon house in central NJ. It was 12 ft tall and makes a yellow colored fig with strawberry colored inside. Should know how it tastes very shortly as it has 2 huge brebas .

    I haven't grown Hardy Hartford, so I can't really comment. If I recall correctly, Hardy Hartford is a Mt Etna type, so they should be similar?

    How do Hardy Chicago and Hardy Hartford compare as far as cold hardiness and look of the fruit produced?

    Yes, climate has a whole lot to do with it. Celeste in our area starts ripening in early June, and last year even in late May.

    There are quite a few members here who also have persimmons. I already have too many scion requests for this year, but in the future I should be able to help you.

    Texas has a rare fruit growers affiliate.(Affiliated to CRFG). I am sure you can get all the scions there you want for free.

    Your file is so helpful for us newbies, Thank you for making it available to us. I have question that'
    Out of the topic, I saw some persimmons in your file and I had never tasted them before, I bought 2 trees 2 years ago , 1 astringent , 1 non astringent. Really loved the non astringent and was wondering how I could get some cutting to graft new varieties to my tree.
