Title: 4-5 and 47-18 Annona hybrids fruiting
Post by: mikesid on May 21, 2014, 06:41:19 PM
These varieties seem to be precocious, especially 47-18. I've been pulling fruits off to help them put some energy into growth but I just can't bring myself to pull off every one. Here is a pic of the 47-18 with the fruit I harvested last year. I don't know why this isn't more popular I really enjoyed it! very sweet, and I like mine a tad on the chewy side sometimes so I picked it early (just a little soft) and it had a really nice texture chewy but soft flesh. These were both developed by Har Mahdeem. 4-5 = 'Priestley' atemoya x A. reticulata var. 'Fairchild Purple'   47-18 = 'Gefner' atemoya x A. reticulata var. 'San Pablo')

I will definitely work on grafting these up as soon as they get some size!

very cool...

My israel red annona is flowering nicely..maybe it will set some fruit this year?

 I wonder if its' the same as yours?  they look so close it must be the same....(but I remember hearing that mine came from a seedling in Israel?)

glad to hear the fruit was decent and the plant is precocious!

Fruits growing on the Israel Red (47-18?)....its about 2 yr old, grafted onto atemoya, I'm surprised by how quickly it was able to set fruits...I actually decided to thin out the fruits, removing one or two, because the tree is so small....and after that, it set a few more fruit, and has continued to flower....this annona season could be very late for me again...with fruits ripening into January, Feb, if all goes well....I don't think I'll have any ripe annona fruits until Sept....

one thing I noticed about this plant..the edges of the leaf have a strange white border....and almost a weird ruffled edge....has anyone noticed this? (I think I may have mentioned it here before).

Title: Re: 4-5 and 47-18 Annona hybrids fruiting
Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on July 10, 2014, 11:48:41 PM
never tasted this one!
I've heard that the fruit quality is variable, depending on growing conditions...and I believe this variety has languished in obscurity because of it's poor performance in FL......but I may be mistaken about this...

apparently Mikesid ate a fruit grown in FL, and spoke highly of it.

and so far, this plant seems to love FL conditions, it handles humidity and heat like a champ.

(I still haven't confirmed whether my tree is different than the true 47-18....but I'm assuming its the same plant...based on Mikesid's description...it's exactly the same...surprisingly precocious...and needs fruit thinning)

Adam, really interesting how unique the leaves are, how does the fruit taste?

-joep450

thanks Har...do you know why this one has been forgotten about? poor performance record in FL?  Also wondering if I might have a different hybrid than 4718....I got mine from Moshe in Israel...I remember hearing from someone who spoke with Moshe, and he said it was a seedling tree??  I was doubtful there could be two separate hybrids so similar... 

also wondering if the 4718 has the unusual white border on the edges of the leaf...like my tree does? 

Nice!   I'm glad someone still has that around here!

haha!  thanks mike...this confirms we have the same tree for sure.

also it's funny, your tree did the same exact thing as mine...setting two fruits side by side.

it's like we are living in parallel universes....

getting close!

(someone told me that this is a hybrid of Geffner, and San Pablo....i guess that would make sense...based on the looks of this one)

so far this has been a great plant for container growing....being productive even though small, and in a pot.

Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on September 10, 2014, 07:08:12 PM
thanks cookiemon,

At first I heard this one was a poor performer in FL.  I also wondered why it faded away into obscurity....so I really didn't have high hopes for this one...and didn't really graft any...

but slowly this plant is proving me wrong (and all the naysayers)

I wonder if this is what happened:

this tree was probably not a good performer down in South FL (maybe the soil, or excess rainfall?)

so it never really caught on....but now with internet, people who are in areas (like Ca, or central FL) where the climate is better for this variety , are finding out about it....and it's popularity will increase with all of the growers interested in annonas  (people all over the world can fruit these in pots) and they seem to do well areas with a bit milder climate.....

but I don't know this for sure...


just a conspiracy theory I've been working on!  ;D

(now i''m thinking i should graft more!  but i'm waiting to taste the fruit for myself...even though Mikesid already harvested some and said it was pretty darn good!....i gotta see with my own taste buds to believe!

Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on September 10, 2014, 07:41:53 PM
JF,
Your mystery Annona is definitely not an Ilama.  It appears to be a Temoylata (Atemoya X Custard-Apple hybrid)

Har, the creator of this one, calls them a Temoylata....this one is 47-18....I was calling it Israel Red for lack of better info...thank goodness for the forum (and Guanabanus and Mikesid)

My current theory as to why these didn't do well here is that the lack of productivity was due to malnutrition, especially not enough Calcium and Boron and Zinc.

Adam, are you planning to have these available anytime in the near future?

If the fruit taste better than a 6 out of 10, I will start propagating a bunch, next spring.

Regardless I will make a small batch before the end of the year.

I will keep the group posted for sure...at the earliest I could have some by late Nov, but they'd be small, and expensive ($25)

tried to get a better pic of the fruit.it has a an almost pinkish green, with purple spots.

I wonder if Zill even has this hybrid still?  Or if he cares about it?

And wonder if they would even give it a name?

Seems like it's up to collectors to revitalize this  hybrid...

here's what's on my annona plate as of now...(a geffner, a few Na Dai, and 4718)

I was impressed....i could taste both components, custard apple and atemoya....the texture was definitely creamier like a custard apple.  The sweetness was about a 7.5 out of 10 (5 being bland, 10 sapodilla sweet)....it also had a nice slightly acid flavor from the custard apple.

I need to propagate more..i think it's worth growing  :D

The fruit that you said tasted good just now, on which rootstock was the tree grafted?

The point I'm trying to make here is that if 47-18 wasn't popular since its creation, maybe because it was not grafted on the right rootstock. Something like a Lisa Atemoya rootstock problem magnifying by 10.

u mean the rootstock is likely to be geffner or african pride?

I know it's not african pride, I never see those in FL...could be Geffner...but my guess is Lisa. 

I can try to ask my friend exactly what variety he used (i didnt' graft this tree)..I know it was atemoya though.

my back up 4718 growing very nicely!

I might get a few fruits!

this hybrid is very productive (based on my limited experience, much like geffner, which is a component of 4718)

Mike and Adam I'm also very interested in this fruit.  I just read the entire post and my mouth is watering!  I am not anywhere close to Florida to buy a tree from you but if there is any hope of seeds producing then I would try for that.   Or else would budwood survive the long journey to Hawaii?   Would you guys recommend grafting this onto cherimoya rootstock?  Or atemoya rootstock?  I know one of the big time grafters here on big island grows a pond apple rootstock then grafts cherimoya onto that.  Then grafts atemoya to the cherimoya.   

I'm not sure what all the best techniques are.  I just love annonas!!  And this purple fruit looks amazing!

I do recommend the 4---5.  I don't know of anyone's currently selling it, and I don't have it.
