Christina Caputo got her Persimmon and other seeds here in NY as well as Long Island.
Here is what Christina wrote: "In August of 2005, I participated in a group exhibition titled Peace by Piece in which I was able to travel to Hiroshima on the 60th anniversary of the atomic bombings, curated by Hiroshi Sunairi. We also toured the Hibaku trees, the only trees that survived. Hiroshi is now distributing them and they are being planted around the world. In December 2009, the grown seedlings will be exhibited at The Horticultural Society of New York."Candice Yu got her persimmon and other seeds and grow her seeds in Hong Kong where her parents live.
