Early Golden versus Garretson persimmons

I understand Garretson was bred out of Early Golden. It seems that as a rule, a variety only survives in commerce if it is superior in some way from what it was bred from. I keep reading that Early Golden consistently won taste tests at Wye, and nothing similar is reported about Garretson. What does Garretson offer that keeps it on folks’ radars? Is it superior to Early Golden in any way?

I started looking at Early Golden and it seemed it was a good start to American Persimmons. Many people recommend Prok persimmon for American.

I don’t have Early Golden, but I believe it’s downfall was seeds. Kind of like Meader. Meader I do have and is good, but medium size with a couple seeds. EG has tons of offspring.
