Is this cherimoya doing okay?
« on: October 19, 2017, 12:07:54 PM »
Hello, I have a el bumping cherimoya tree with tip burn and some yellowing leaves, is this because of the Santa Anaís? It reached 102 with 19 percent humidity.

Yes it looks fine, cherimoya will shed their leaves soon so nothing to worry about

Canít see the details well fr your photos, but overall leaves look normal. Burnt leaves usually start at the tips on upper/exposed branches, then turn to crispy like chips...; but they should recover as already mentioned.
To help minimize leaves burnt, I normally do extra watering the morning before the afternoon heat (in my area, anything above 95F) was predicted...

March-May, around there. Not on the same schedule as deciduous fruits.

Your tree looks too tall. Next Spring, you should bring it down much lower but above the graft. You will have difficulty pollinating the flowers and bagging/harvesting fruit if the canopy is too high up.

I'm using the tree for shade so I can grow an achacharu and a cacao . I can get a ladder and pollinate. Sure it's kinda inconvenient, but I'm using it for canopy
