I got a chance to try anona rosada for the first time last night.  It was refreshingly delightful.  Nice creamy texture with a berry tone.  Thank you JF!

I tried the other half today... chilled.  WOW!  Just like berry yogurt.  Even the wife and older daughter enjoyed it.  In fact, my wife liked anona rosada better than a cherimoya.


This does not surprise me. A good SoCal grown rosada will give top tier moyas fits in a tasting. As moyas get harder to grow in our climate we should transition to atemoyas and ilams

Yea, let them drop those look ready but if they want to hang on let them. Holiday is a good size fruit but production has been inconsistent for me. Iím patient so Iíll just let the tree mature since it does take too much space.

Mouth watering pictures.   It will be many more years before i can try the rosada.  :(

It only takes 2-3 years to get your first fruit and if you buy a 15 gallon even sooner

I would be patient , whats the hurry, let it hang on the tree as long as it can for full flavor. Believe Iíve been harvesting sir Prize for a while and you want to wait.

You are welcome Warren. Rosada might be a cherimoya killer but when you put it against heavyweights like Pierce it shoot blanks.

The pix above are from Yucatan now. Our winter crop is more plentiful than the tropics during this time of the year ...... been traveling there for years in winter. If you like bad Mamey, mediocre Chico, jocotes, Black sapote etc youíll love it. We have all that plus anonas, awesome citrus and avocado. Enjoy your trip to panama

If you pick sir Prize green they are bland and lack oil. Iíve tasted hundreds of the cados. Iíd wait until they color for optimum flavor....the longer the hang on the tree the better they taste

Nice achacha! Mine is about the same size flushing year round but no bloom. I give up trying to predict when it will flower

Jf,

Does ongís lisa looks like the typical lisa?  I mean the kids holding the atemoya, do the lisa atemoya look normal?

Yea it has some resemblance of Lisa like my Birula. Quand calls it Lisa so you have to believe him but $375 for a 15 gallon is outrageous

Fruited and ripen magagna and fruits drop from Mamey Colorado to young. There are a lot of seedling fruiting like cangrejo in SoCal
