You need to separate them and mark each one for identification purposes.

JF, notes from U.C.R say they turn black when mature.  Is that correct?

Yeah, probably needed more hang time Samu.  Also if a young tree may not have hit its stride regarding fruit quality.

They do turn black not as much as lamb hass but I was surprised to seing 3 pounders wow!! Sam is right you gotta give them their hang time or you'll have Floridas watercados

Not only can cherimoyas compete with atemoyas they crush them. We've had extensive tasting with all of the varieties mike has mention except maroochy  gold and the atemoyas sit far in the back of the bus. I don't know what's happening in Australia with cherimoyas but here in California even the Asian communities, which are in general devotees of chewy atemoyas, are coming around to recognize the superiority of the cherimoya

Sorry, Frank, you're referring to only "young" people who either grew up here or who were not into fruits before and therefore have never really paid any attention to such fruits. This group is most likely to adopt cherimoyas and Florida mangos and it's a group that is growing, obviously. There are random exceptions to this with a few people here and there, of course.

Hi Thera
this is not only my gut feeling but the owner of PHO has expressed this to me.....he sells his chicos and moyas directly to Asian markets
