Is Nikita's gift necessary if you already have an astringent persimmon?

Is Nikita’s gift special in its own way.

It’s just another variety with a slightly different taste. It’s only special if you personally think it’s special.

I would say it is if you are in zone 6 (or sheltered in 5b), but if you are in zone 7 and above, I would go with a true kaki persimmon.
