In the  tropics they grow super fast. I have several seedlings I started in YucatŠn 2 years ago that are over 2 meters. I expect them to start producing next season. In the subtropics add 2 to 3 years to that.

Preferably 12-14í. I have them 8í apart and I have to prune 2-3 x a year and I still get aphids honeydew, slugs, spiders, caterpillars  all the pathogens....after 3-4 years you will run into these issues if you plant them that close.

Great looking fruit! Itís obvious a seedling of the seeds of Birula I sold you.

Thanks JF for confirming. It's about 4yrs.  I am starting to enjoy the fruit of my had labor and thanks to your seeds.   It definetly does not look like those fruits that lady's hand.
I don't know if the Yucatan annona seeds I got from you are germinating.  Haven't really seen it it.

JF, your comment state birula is the best out of all of them. Mom said it is the best anonna she has eaten, better than the one she had in Asia.

I'm still waiting for your ilma seeds to germinate.

Birula is a favorite of a lot of folks in the forum. Itís great you get to name your new variety. All YucatŠn seeds have germinated for me , some after months, in fact, I might have some YucatŠn seedlings for sale this summer for pick up only.

Here is a pix of our Atemoya x 4718 cross. Thanks goes out to our forum member that provided the pix. Look at the leaves they resemble a reticulata. According to our friend the fruit ripens with a yellow tint the taste of the fruit is poor

To clarify, the caliper size I sell are between 1/2 and 1/8. all my anonas are prune 2 x a year therefore I am harvesting relatively new wood. I will randomly send you whichever size wood is available. Please take note of this before ordering. Next round starts Monday March 16 Iím trying to ship all orders from this week by Saturday. Next week will be the final week of the sale.
Thanks for your support

You can tell it is 4718 from the neon yellow around the leaf.  Everyone and their mother have over hype and purchase the tree but later regret the time, energy, and money wasted.  Then you throw your fist in the air and say you got me Ong!!!!  No!!!!!!

It certainly looks like a 4718 Mikey. I got my 4718scions from Spain about 7 years ago.

About names:

When naming hybrids, the seed parent (mother) is named first.

So far, I have never seen a viable "atelata", which means Sugar-Apple ("ata" or "ate" or "atis", Annona squamosa) crossed with/pollinated by Custard-Apple (Annona reticulata).

"Atemoya" means Sugar-Apple crossed with Cherimoya (Annona cherimola);  this name has also usually been used also for Cherimoya crossed with Sugar-Apple, because people were not distinguishing.  "Atemoya" is the first of these "hybrid words" to name hybrid fruits, and was "coined" over a hundred years ago.

"Temoylata" means atemoya pollinated by Annona reticulata.

"Cherilata" is Annona cherimola pollinated by Annona reticulata.

Yes thatís why I ask whoever created this so call cherilata or temoylata  what Moya variety was used for the cross. I doubt it was a cherimola x reticulata cross because cherimoyas donít do well I n Florida....

You guys are welcome.
We are going to pause again to get caught up, Iím swamp! I will resume taking order Monday 16 the last week of the sale.

Thanks for your support

I had 2 grafted red AtemoyA from Spain  that I left it hold 2 fruits which I didnít care for and I let the graft a forum search to see fruits. The seeds for the cross hybrids were germinated and eventually fruited by a member in this forum and he said the fruit was ok nothing especial.....Iíve never bother to try.

Hi mark
I drop by Ong last month on my way to YucatŠn thru CBX. I couldn't believe how much inventory quang carries in that small location. His red atemoyas are expensive from $200 to $1,500 I believe. I fruited a red Atemoya years ago I got my wood also from Spain. I did a cross with pinks mammoth atemoya thatís fruited.

What cherimoya variety was used in this cross? Given that cherimoyas struggle in south Florida.

Yes Joy itís difficult when you have to run around and collect scions from 3 or 4 orchards. Iím not as lucky as some of the guys here who have acreage and can draw all their scions from one place.
