I'm getting a thread started for Annona scions 2017.
Feel free to post here if you have some for sale.
I'm not going to be grafting many Annonas this year, but will be selling lots of scions...I usually start selling them in February (depending on weather)....but I am willing to ship any time of year, as long as you accept that there are no refunds.
here is a quick list of what will be for sale, although there are no prices listed, I've tried to list the scions from least rare, to most rare...so cheapest to most expensive.
Kampong Mauve Sugar apple
Mr. Minh Atemoya
PPC (pet pac chong) Atemoya
Yucatan Sugar apple
Big Red Sugar Apple
Meiogyne cylindrocarpa (fingersop)
Annona muricata "miami" guanabana
A. mucosa (Rollina deliciosa) "Monstrinho"
A. macroprophyllata (A. diversifolia) "Genova Red Illama"
A. reticulata "Kimber Red"
A. reticulata (unnamed yellow fruited variety, scions from NullZero)
A. reticulata (x squamosa?) "Vinho-Tinto"...from Luc of Mexico.
A. squamosa "Giant Mexican"
A. salzmannii "Beach Sugar Apple"
*possibility of selling root cuttings from Anonidium mannii (Junglesop) as well...so far looks like they may be relatively easy to root...i have some really long root cuttings to harvest.
Wayne didn't take out a patent on "Dream Cherimoya," did he? What about the Indians who developed Arka Sahan? Is it patented? Like someone said, the only way to know for sure if they are one and the same is to do genetic testing. Otherwise, just enjoy the fruit. I like Dom's idea of grafting both on the same tree.I wonder why people don't just take Wayne's word for it, that he planted a seedling, and the seedling grew poorly on it's own roots, so he grafted onto pond apple and cherimoya, at which point the scions from his seedling were able to grow vigorously. He never took scions back with him, it was just seeds....he's not a liar, or crazy, or a drunkard, or a druggie...
I bought the perforated "budded" tape from A.M. Leonard. It looks just like buddy tape, maybe it's sold to them and they put their own name on it. It was probably the cheapest around, and there's usually good coupons for a discount.
Annona cornifolia, seeds are over, thank you for buying.
I buy grafting tape from Amazon.com. It is called 'docooler nursery grafting tape. It is made of polyethylene,is of high tensile strength, is stretchable and biodegradeable. It is the best tape I have come across.
Just got a roll from nursery grower supply. They have to special order some so the price is 30 bucks now with 6 dollars shipping. Normally i think they sell for 25
who else be needing buddy tape now? I can't find!
This guy on ebay still has non-perforated:
Plant looks great. If your selling the seeds, save me a few
My one is flourishing and pumping out big fruit like a machine.They are booming around here also in places that had over 40 inches of rain last week with new flushes of growth. There has not a zephyr, night temps are not falling below 80f and the day temps climb through the 90s. The air is like syrup and even if your are like a starfish under the fan on full you are in a pool of sweat. The humidity has been at saturation level for weeks now but the grimal has welcomed summer with new foliage and its best fruiting ever. Heat and humidity as well as heavy rain is something they enjoy.
Is it Tori or Avril?
I'm starting to ship seedlings of this rare species (Myrciaria spirito-sanctensis)! It's been a joy to grow so far, much easier than most of the other rare species. The foliage is beautiful too! I'm excited to taste fruits eventually !!Is the the myrciaria spirito sanctensis susceptible to rust like the grimal ? My area have high rainfall.If it does well in areas with high rainfall i would like to purchase seedling from you
My good friend Adam You have way to much time on your hands
Same genetics. Don't call it an atemoya when dealing with Wayne. Excellent fruit. It is the best annona I have tasted in Florida but I certainly haven't tried them all.
