[nafex] Persimmons Grafted

I am curious about my persimmons.
I have nursery bought Japanese persimmons that have small fruit now 
in South La...zone 8b. One is astringent and one is non astringent. 
Both have fruit.
I grafted the astringent one onto a local wild persimmnon and it is 
far behind the donor tree. The newly grafted tree is a few years old 
now and is just blossoming out....but the donor has fruit.
I am  wondering why so far behind? The rootstock is causing it for 
sure ! Or could it be the folly of youth ?
As an aside....everything here seems to be leafed out ... but see 
some hickories just budding out...they must be the latest 
thing....way behind the already flowered pecans.
Thank you
Pete in 8b
