I'm curious too.  I'm in zone 6 (w/ greenhouse) and I just sprouted some cherimoya seeds from grocery store fruit.

It depends how well you take care of them. If you water and fertilize properly, they will probably fruit in about 4-5. I fruited a couple Cherimoya from seeds but it was a long time ago and I wasnít taking notes.

4-5 years is about right. I fruited an seedling Atemoya from Taiwan in 4 years in a pot.

Hello,

It will take 4-6 years in our zone.
I grew several from seeds, 1 flowered in 4.5 years, the second one just started flowering this year so 5.

Flowering doesn't guarantee a fruit, so it's definitely got some more growth to establish.
Remember, to protect the trees from frost. It goes into dormancy around late fall to early winter.
