I thinned some of Nikita's gift, although with only about 20 developing persimmons - after thinning - I did leave some near the others. On some branches, there were as many as 6, close together. I thought that was too much competition for resources, and I want them to be as early, large, and sweet, as the leaves can support.
As for the chocolate persimmon grafts, the first is slowly progressing, still with a brownish - red coloration to the leaves. The second needed several additional weeks to begin growth, but finally started. So that means don't be too impatient.
