I hear sun rays are cancerous too. And southern CA air. And the flouride and chlorine in city water.... Its a scary world out there.
I just started one.. an air-layered sunrise variety.. but just planted that about two weeks ago.. haha.. so I'll answer your question in 10 years..
My big sweetheart (about 15 feet tall) has about 80% bloom. It started as a vegetative flush and then converted to bloom.
Sam they look find they are just a little beat up from winter. I suspect you had late new growth like mine
Im wondering if they still use turpentine as a rootstock?
Yes however there could be various forms.
The draw of the miami tree is that it's supposed to be productive even in poor high ph soil.
There are 2 types of guanabanas -- sweet ones and tart. The tart variety is a mix of sweet and tart with varying degrees of both components, but the sweet has little to no detectable acidity and is actually quite good. Julian claims that the miami cultivar is of the sweet type, but that's unconfirmed, since I've never tried one.
I'm growing grafted langsat and santol, 2 varieties actually.
Sweet santol and the sour variety.
They lost all their leaves, but I'm starting to see new growth.
Only my first year keeping them, we'll see if they survive the winter in 9B, if so then we got ourselves a winner!
