Searching For Mikkusu

Howdy!

I am planning to grow a few varieites of Persimmon in the spring and am currently on the hunt for a Mikkusu (JT-02). I am in Northeast Pennsylvania, zone 6a. Currently have on order a Prok, a Yates, a Saijo, and a Rosseyanka. I know the Rosseyanka is a more hardy variety, so I’m taking my chances putting that one in the ground (the Saijo will be an experimental container plant), but i’d like to have a second hybrid variety in the ground that I know will survive the winter without incident. I called England’s Nursery only to be informed that they no longer offer shipping… Does anyone know where I can get my hands on a Mikkusu for the Spring? I am not looking to graft atm, just looking for a small starter plant. If anyone can point me in the right direction it’d be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

You might like Kasandra also, has been as cold-hardy as Mikkusu here in 6a KS.
