maybe next year. got about 30 seedlings tree that are starting to produce.   This year, got about 10+ trees producing about 200 fruits,  mainly devour about the family, and some rats/squirrels. 

This 10yrs seedling has pretty good fruits. Each fruits should be protected from squirrel/rats.  I accidentally knocked off two small fruits during the process. 

i was wondering if soursop is like cherimoya, where it needs the leaves to drop in order for the flowering buds to come out.

I bought some giant cherimoyas variety of seed from Raulglezruiz.  I think he said 3kilo is the size of the fruit. We'll see in a few years if the seedling will produce 3kilo fruit.

no time for anything else other than the garden.

I saw my neighbor's cat this morning in the backyard, a couple hours later, I found a big giant rat dead  next to the mango tree.  Maybe it's the cat's present for me for new year present.  Not sure if it's the my dog or the cat killed it.


pick this for mom today, another seedling tree .

was out at 6am this morning in the backyard to burn some woods to keep it warm, and I saw frost on the cushion seat that's out in the open.

yep, i noticed that 5pm is no longer that dark anymore. It is getting brighter.

is it going to make it?

Joe is right about cherimoya in nortern CA bay area.  They love the climates here.  I have about 30+ seedlings ranging from 4-10yrs.  14 of the trees are fruiting now. Other than some having too many seed(maybe I overdid it on hand polination), the taste and texture of the fruits are excellent, sweet with some acidity, and strong flavor.  One of the trees that fruited this year(planted seed in 2012, seed from taiwanese friend), I picked one off the tree to give to my mother, she called me last night and said it's the best out of the bunch.  Not too much seeds, and the inside is sectional,chewy, a bit like sugar apple, but not graining.  I have a few more fruits on that tree, will try to take picture next time of the fruit and taste it myself, provided that the squirrels and rats don't beat me to it.

How do you keep the squirrel and rats away from your annonas?
One freak'n squirrel was dancing around my trees. I tried to beat it with a broomstick, in the process of chasing the dame thing, it picked one of my larger cherimoya right in front of my eye while it was jumping around, then took off with it.

So far, I lost about 10 cherimoyas .

good price, looks similar to my house.  where are you moving to next?

grafted , from florida.

no special soil other than compost. my soil drains pretty well. it's not clay.

it's a glass greenhouse about a the size of a is pretty heavy, about 2000lb. i was feed up with plastics and polycarbon doesn't look that nice.
In the winter, i heat it up with a few candles since I don't have any other heating source.
