After my knowledge the persimons seem to take until - 4° Fahrenheit so don' t know what are the lows in your zone, so I think it s really an experiment which needs protection of the trees, especially if they are young.
I have persimon sharon and Jiro and this winter they took 3° Fahrenheit without problems.
Concerning taste I have never eaten a bad tasting kaki or persimon if they are full matured. I think the difference is the arstringence of much varieties if they aren' t full ripe.
I have persimon jiro and persimon sharon ( fuyu, with the first 7 fruits this year, but not tested yet to let them a bit ripening on the tree).
Good success Frank

You may want to look at some of the improved American Persimmons or even an asian and American hybrid like Rosseyanka. Here is an old but good discussion on American Persimmon varieties.

Sorry I can't be more help.
