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...
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.
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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYjJ3UGmz_4
Looking forward for the scion offering from you...soon!
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.
Here's a couple off screen's shot from the 1st Youtube video from JF's post above:
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.
Thanks! Looks I should have bought u and a.
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?
