I've had reports from Florida that Cumbe grows very well. Here they are starting to fruit and it looks like another variety battling for cherimoya supremacy.

Thanks for keeping us updated on our fav fruit, Frank!
From that video, they look like low seeds count!
Any report on the the taste and other characteristic?
At 9:05; is that their method of manual pollination? Looks interesting...
Wish I can understand the audio...

Sam,  only thing you have to understand is nearly 3 kilos! lol excellent taste and of course, hand pollination for max production.....this one has  only been fruited by Behl early evaluate is promising but in a month I will have a tasting with a few members for the California  cherimoya society

Mark, Carlos wrote an article several years ago about the Shick set-up and i have been using his for soft wood all the time,I even bought a lot of extras blades just in case they quit making them.I do have to add a little tape to lock the blade a little better.Exacto have 2 models i use the heavy duty one.


Excel holder works without any adjustments.

Carlos turned us onto the Schick, I turned him onto the WorkSharp.  He got it, tried it, called and left a delighted message on my answering machine - "EEEENCREDIBLE" !  ;D  He was using an old barber's stropping strap for sharping his tools and blades.  This should be in every gardener's toolbox.  It's not only great for a farm or gardener but for the home as it will sharpen about every kind of tool or blade with the same angle every time.  I sharpen my Felco's in seconds, same with lopping shears.  I use a 80 grit belt for tools (shovel, lopping shears, hand pruners) and a 300 grit for knives which includes my pocket knife and Wursthof kitchen knives.

Hi Sam

We have just completed the anona scion sale and Cumbe was offered.I will offer it again when I prune in late July. Cumbe is consider the best cherimoya in South America not only for it's superior qualities but for its medicinal properties and also is consider a powerful aphrodisiac. Here are videos from  city of Cumbe providence of Otao Huarochiri, the cumbe  region,in their festivals

Of my few very small cherimoya the Cumbe definitely has the best looking leaves at this point. Spain and McPherson are looking decent, but not nearly as green and full.

Oh man, I missed that; OK Frank, looking forward to your next offering!
(just hope it's not rather late to graff in late July).
It's amazing to see Cherimoya fruits can be that huge as in the Youtube
links posted above... ;D

I had the cumbe 6-7yrs ago, it was really good flavor overall. They carry it in Chinatown SF for 5lbs$5/lb then.  I think my seedling are going to give me fruit this year. Last year I got several flowers but no fruits.  This year, I'm confident it will give me some fruits.

Amazing moyas and what an opportunity to try some.  Had my first Booth's last night and they were incredibly delicious.

1.  What's the difference between Campus and Campas, Campas being a Spanish commercial variety,

2.  What's the story behind Cumbe?  Genetics, pollination requirements, fruit quality, etc.

thanks

They don't sell Cumbe in the USA. What you probably had was Carmela cherimoya from Dario from cherimoya.com. He is the creator of some of these California seedlings from South America

Mark
Campus is mammillated and the other is smooth. It also has very few seed and it's semi self pollinated
'
The story is on the video I hope or someone in your family speak Spanish l. The video gives you a nice history of Cumbe cherimoya

Frank,

couple questions...generally speaking, how long before annona graft unions heal after pushing, to the point where i can remove the tape and parafilm?

Next question, looks like a little water from the rain made it under the parafilm from the holes caused by the buds pushing, and i see a little moisture collecting near the union..anything to worry about? rot/fungus etc?

always longing for a JA Julie

If you wrapped your scions one wrap with parafilm like you should have (not 3 or so) there is no need to remove it. The buds will easily push thru.

hey Mark..i think i didnt explain well..

the buds are pushing through fine on the scion...I'm talking about the graft union of the stock and scion, and when to remove the grafting tape (i also wrapped the union with one go around of parafilm on top of the tape)...
