It's hard to believe that such temperature occurred so close to the ocean. But since I don't have anymore info, I'll leave it there.
Actually I was there during heat wave.  My car showed outside temperature 116 near Palm Springs, and 109 in Orange county.

I live in San Fernando Valley, 30 mins away from downtown LA & This occured while I was on my trip in the Philippines, my accurite weather station ticked-in to 122f. That time, I also communicated with my neighbor, his car temp ticked in to 121f. Luckily,  no plants were hurt xcpt mango fruits that dropped & 20 gallon lychee that died.

I guess all the hardwork infusing of beneficial microbes did help as well as my achachas.

This occured july 6, 2018 during our heatwave.
We had 110f plus for a span of 3 weeks that time.

They do grow well here. One of the members here named 'JF' is successfully growing them in the ground (maybe 5 years?), outdoors in La Habra, CA. (Photo was taken june 2017)


I have a few achachas. One in-ground & few in pots. I have a harsher temps than JF & they do take 122f & 28f temps. Howver, to be safe, it is best to protect them on their juvenile stage.

Buttercream & venus seems to be mono.

M4 is poly.

Guess I will agree to disagree.  Dir those in the US, many have the opportunity to  taste, just takes the want, effort and cost.

As for tge vidoes, since taste is objective and most people's taatebuds seem to interpret differently, it doesnt tell anyone how they will taste for each viewer or if they will like it.

As for Sulcata's videos, those are a downright joke...but then again the world lives off of youtube and FB and is hypnotized by the internet and believes all they see and hear.

Rob...sounds like we need a bsbullie YouTube channel for mango reviews ....with ripe fruit and a "down to earth" assessment.


That would be darn awesome!

Arent you guys worried about the neurotoxins in Anonas? Since I read about the possible link to  parkinson's disease I was too scared to eat them.  I love sugar apple  :(

Lots of people in Asia eat anona everyday.  We don't hear people in those countries with any brain related diseases. Only US has lots of people with brain diseases. I think it's the drugs that are available in US makes cause brain diseases, not anona.

I usually eat 3 soursops fruits a day when in season in the Philippines & 1 bag of atis for 10 years (when i was there) and i guess my system is full of annonacin aka neurotoxin. But hey, im still alive & ready to eat more annonacins. :)

Is 0-15 mono?

I concur mostly on what annona king of CA wrote (at least to thr varieties that i have tasted).

While 'Pierce' i consider king of all annona species & calostro , an atemoya is the closest thing to a cherimoya bec of its sweetness.

I enjoyed Buttercream WAY more than M4. (Though Iím only going off of one tasting evaluation). Agree with SweetTart. & Fruit Punch is good... but Iíve found some more of the newer varieties that I enjoyed most this year like ButterCream, Him Sagar, & Guava.

What made u said that u rnjoyed buttercream more than m4?

Sleepdoc was kind enough to share the tasting of the first forum documented fruit grown to maturity on mainland U.S. with me today.  Thank you Sleepdoc!

The fruit had fallen from the tree on Tuesday. The decision was made to allow the fruit to continue to ripen until Saturday before tasting. However, today, the fruit was very soft and looked like it was going down hill fast.  The fruit was very small.  Sleepdoc scored the skin of the fruit, which was very thin, and pulled the two halves apart. Unfortunately, the seed was nearly full sized and the fruit barely had any flesh. There was less than half a teaspoon to share between the myself, Sleepdoc, and his son.  The flavor was suprisingly sweet and only had the smallest hint of acidity and I thought it was very pleasent. It was one of the sweetest garcinias I have ever tasted. The skin had a thin layer of flesh, which I scraped with my teeth. It had a little more acidity and tasted similar to a sweet achachairu.

Seems promising, however, did u take any photos of the flesh inside.?

This is highly possible. Would like to see Simon's input here.

This is a delicious mango, coconuty flavor going on and much.....itís moved into my top 10


I have two M4 hanging on my graft from last year, if they hold we will taste it in CA.

Finally, a m4 CA grown would probably be better than the ones in Fl, jst like how ST & LZ were high on brix last year.

21
Let it sit in the counter till u are able to smell a strong aroma & skin is quite soft then its ready.

22
Oh damn. Gorgeous damn compact trees. :)

If the seeds I posted truly are Monoembryonic, there would have been a rearrangement of genetic material and the resulting seedling will not be a clone of the parent.

Simon

Thanks simon.

25
Thatís what it appears to be but the top seed still has the brown skin on it so there may be segmentation beneath although it doesnít look like thatís the case. I do not know if it will be a clone or the zygotic seedling coming up if only one sprout comes out from the top seed.

Simon

Hi simon, i have took out the brown skin & no segmentation noticed.

That being said & as well as the seeds u uploaded means it will not be the same as the parent?
