I am wanting either a root sucker or cuttings to attempt to grow the astringent variety. It looks like a giant acorn. I grew up eating these, not realising how rare they are. I am unable to locate a store that sells the astringent variety.

I know one of the original NZ trees is in Te Puke You should put your area in when looking for stuff.

Thank you. I am living in Manawatu. My grandmothers tree was in Whangarei - but unfortunately it is no longer there.

Have a look at this

Among prominent cultivars are the non-astringent 'Fuyu', 'Jiro', 'Gosho' and 'Suruga'; the astringent 'Hiratanenashi', 'Hachiya', 'Aizumishirazu', 'Yotsumizo' and 'Yokono'. The Persimmon cultivars are divided into two categories, namely "Astringent and Non-astringent" persimmons.

Ask the NZ persimmon council if they can help
