It taste similar to cherimoya but maybe a tad less sweet. size is a little.smaller than cherimoya and the seeds are quite large.

I taste better for sure.

Interesting podcast! Thanks for posting.

It is promosing that they are breeding mangos to replace old Tommy atkins, I hope the change happens sooner rather than later

Amazing he planted 3000 seeds in one summer for three summers

Hey George,

I received the budwood yesterday and all the varities were in excellent condition. Thanks for the freebies as well!


Remember the possibility of twins and triplets from sexual reproduction;  so an occasional occurrance of more than one plant from seeds of a variety that normally seems to be monoembryonic are not necessarily proof of polyembryony, even though the latter tends to be our first guess.

That's wild I haven't even thought of that! Are most "twins" identical?

My stone fruits have all been disappointments. It seems the ones that flowered and fruited heavily last year have no fruit set this year. Inca plum looks to be my only constant producer. Some are still young but the majority are eyeing the chopping block to be replaced by sub-tropicals.

The sucker will produce fruit of any unknown quality and will take away the energy your sugar apple needs to grow. I would remove it.

Any more info on "Jamie Rose" avocado?

your yard looks great!

Impressive! Let us know how your cherimoya tastes

Squam that is some legendary detective work. Thanks for putting all that work into exposing this ebay seller, I know I have thought from buying him in the past.

If it is a seedling then it is its own variety so it would not be possible to ID


The elusive Buttercream mango and Guava mango on turpentine rootstock finally arrive in Southern California.
We'll see how these do in SoCal next year.

Where did you get those from?


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Is this cherimoya doing okay?

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

Man Patrick
i would love to see photos too.

i now have 2 Sherwoods (from you)
1 un-named
1 Li
and 1 Coco

the largest is about 8 or 9ft tall, but still very young (2 yrs)

i cant imagine these things 30ft tall and loaded with fruit.
some of them are 4 to 5 ft away from each other.
i will have to keep the ones in front (Southern) shorter
so the ones in back can get more light. when they get larger i guess.

this is the  top of my Coco
it grew the fastest and produced the most.
(this year anyway)

How do the Coco taste?

I think everyone agrees that taste is subjective. I prefer cherimoyas to atemoyas but they can be pretty close to taste. Cherimoyas tend to be sweeter and more creamy in texture. Some good varieties to seek out:

El Bumpo

the list of good cherimoyas is large, but those are some good ones that come to mind.

Thanks for sharing your collection and making it affordable. You are the man!


Does anyone know what kind of morus nigra variety does dave wilson nursery has?

I didnt like the taste no sweetnes detected but sour... its been in the ground for almost a year --this tree grows pretty quick....

was wondering if it has something to do with the maturity?

im looking to pug it & graft it to a better variety....

is it possible say for instance graft a persian to a morus nigra(dwarf)?

I believe they have persian and black beauty.

the taste should be close to a blackberry, at what color are you picking them?

It's hard to say. The typically grafting season is around June for us in CA. If the graft failed it should turn black/brown...

Wow with all the CRFG scion exchanges in Jan/Feb, I thought early spring is the prime grafting season with a few exceptions (say citrus). What do you typically graft in June?

I was referring to mango only, which is an exception like citrus. However, I think a few forum members have had success in the colder months in grafting mangos

It's hard to say. The typically grafting season is around June for us in CA. If the graft failed it should turn black/brown in a few weeks. The graft won't heal completely for a few months. Also do you have anything other that parafilm holding the graft union together?
