There's more then that.  Fruit color is a trait of varieties, not the varieties themselves.

Good luck Raul , as you know the purple pulp one is still on my bucket list , I've been trying for close to one year now to contact these people . First they don't answer ( classical ) , 6 months later they say they will transfer my request to the right people in their organization .....still waiting . Some friends from that area " Tierra Caliente " advised me not to go over there if I cherish my life , controlled by the Cartels . There is a guy ( old timer - even older than me ...lol....) who has a collection of more than 30 varieties in his potrero . I managed to narrow it down to a little town somewhere 50 km higher up in the sierra . I think we will need to hire Team 6 or similar , not sure if the Expendables are still in business ...find out will you ...if we ever wanna ad all those to our collection .
Anyway ....I miss those short expeditions we use to take , I still would like to take the risk , at my age I'd rather die from a bullet than from high blood pressure .

Genova Red




Jf,
It is beautiful.  I envy your annonas collection.  I have the red ilama but I don't have any other type of ilama.  All of your ilama grafts failed maybe it was too hot and I didn't have enough shades.  I'm looking forward to more of your scions in the spring. 

If you have other types please tell us in details.

Marklee,

Please update us on the color and taste of your ilama.  If it is different from what I have I would love some scion wood.  It is a very pretty plant and flower.

Would ilama survive the cold nights in Inland Empire area? I was able to experience the winter in Riverside earlier in the year. There was couple of nights that the temps dipped into the mid 30s. I didn't see any dead trees or plant from anyone, but I am not too sure.

Ilama white .


That white ilama has more of an elongated look compared to mine, I guess that's 2 different varieties of white.
