Beautiful, what was your process for seed germination?  Do you have any full pictures of the trees?

GA3 500ppm for 10 hrs was used on the seeds and I presume etoliation wont be a problem.A shorter time at 500ppm probably would have been ok.My trees are a bit crowded and obstructed by other things so I cant get shots of the trees.

Yeah, Iím also interested in how you rate illamas compared to Cherimoya or Atemoyas. The fruit looks beautiful.

Well done Mike. I really like the red colouring of the flowers on this Annona, plus they look pretty large to.
