I've got Geneva Long and Rossseyanka grafted and growing in my orchard, but 
neither has fruited yet.
Jerry Lehman had an article in POMONA within the last two years, detailing 
his experience with Rosseyanka in his orchard in Terre Haute, IN.
Seems like I recall he indicated the tree looked more like the D.kaki 
parent, fruits were more like D.virginiana; out of 85 fruits produced in 
'98, there were 12 seeds.
