The best rootstock for Ilama in Southern California is cherimoya.

Itís an annona diversifolia. Papause is what we call it in Central America .... itís place of origin.
Jf, what country are you from? I ask because I am Belizean.

Hi, I was wondering what it tastes like

It has a distinct berry taste. Rob ( bsbullie) once described it that it taste like a strawberry cheese that pretty close as the texture is somewhat firm. Very unique Tasting annona

Sure some seedlings will seem very much like their mother trees, just as some persons think that they are looking at my late father when they see me!
That is not the same as being genetically identical, which is what "This fruit tree breeds true" is supposed to mean.

Har, I though sugar apples were true to seed? I know hybrid saramoyos and custard apple are not. How about Papause?

I agree.  Here in the tropics I can fruit the ultra tropical but after 10 years of traveling and now living here Iím not impress. I have to protect everything because of the scourging heat from from March to October w 50Ē of precipitation, not much compare to other zones in the tropics.

Some crack ilamas there and I have one that has fruit just like them. Do you know what variety it is?

Mike, this is a variety from El Salvador thatís called Rosada. It grows and fruits better in Southern California than in the tropics. Iím in YucatŠn right now, there isnít much going on. Southern California is the best growing zone for tropical in the northern hemisphere

What a bummer, but I knew this was our friend's VP the minute I saw it. Multigrafted trees are a hassle, its hard to match varieties that preform equally w respect to new growth. Our friend has dozens of mango trees that are mostly multigrafted. Unless you stay on top of it an label all grafts you wont be able to keep up and that's precisely what happen in this case. He has multiple Jumbo Kesar trees and grafts from multiple sources, I'm sure he'll fruit a Jumbo kesar one day.

Cherimoya rootstock works great with Ilama. I can manage at 12í by pruning 2x a year. Here is my Genova red next to my Rollinia 5í apart

if I think which friend you are talking about, I believe its his Valencia Pride.

Look at the similarities. As Warren pointed out above, any kesar that has red color on shoulders is not kesar. there are fakes in India too. Kesar DOES NOT get red color on shoulder.




If we are talking about the same friend I know heís none stop grafting. He graft so much he doesnít know what heís grafting or labels it.
