Grafted atemoya in hawaii

Does anyone know where I can buy a grafted atemoya
tree in hawaii?  Or a source that will ship to hawaii?

Thanks

Have you checked Frankie's on Oahu?  Last I checked with them, they did not seem to be grafting Annonas anymore but worth checking with them.  Kauai nursery has atemoya trees listed (http://www.kauainursery.com/images/fruitbook.pdf); I have never ordered from them but when I checked a couple of years back, they will ship.  David Frenz at Birds n' Buds in Hilo (808-987-6455) may be worth a try but I doubt that he ships.  Chances are, you will only find oe or two clones at any of these nurseries, not the variety that you see discussed on this group.

If you know how to graft & want to grow up some rootstocks, I believe that Oscar at Fruitlovers has scions available.

Last year bought a grafted atemoya at the made in Hawaii festival from olomana tropical storm.  African pride?  Didn't do anything with it and it took cracks from the wind at my place.  Gave it to my friend up the road and is now thriving.  Try call them.
