I recently toured Tripple Brook Farm in Massachusetts and tasted an amazing variety of American Persimmons. While on the tour, the owner talked about a variety of American persimmon that holds its fruit into January/February. He mentioned going outside in the snow, shaking the tree and having ripe persimmons fall onto the snow. He said this particular variety is called "Miller" but that he didn't have any on his farm. A search for Miller persimmons turns up nothing. I noticed a variety called "Mohler," but I couldn't find anything about this variety holding its fruit for so long. Does anyone know of a variety of American persimmon that would match his description?
