Gefner atemoya needs 210 warm days from pruning to harvesting.
Last summer was cool so 7 months wasn't enough.

I root my DF in a bucket with 1" of water.

Young roots are tender, but easy to plant without breaking any roots.

I paid $14 for 40 lb for gypsum in the garden area.
Gypsum in the other area of the store was expensive.

Gefner Atemoya needs more days on tree than cherimoya.
Gefner prone to split in cold weather when near maturity.

Color transition to harvest is about 2 months.
Tag it then cut 2 months later.

There are only 2 entries for custard apple in Australian Plant Breeders Rights.
KJ Pinks expires in 2 years.
Pinksblush expires in 17 years.

What is this ďCotton CandyĒ?

There are no recent patents for cherimoya nor atemoya trees in US.
The Australian have Plant Breeders Rights.
Pink Mammoth and Hillary White would be expired if translate to US Patent 20 years lifetime.

Which varieties you want to sell?

Brad,

Iíve not detected off taste from mature AP.
Let your AP hang as long as possible.
Eat them in Spring.
Compare them to fruits from other trees.
Then decide if they deserve a spot or 2.

For AP only,

prune in July. Pollinate in August.
Immature AP fruits wonít split over winter.
You get 1.5 lb fruits and a few 2 lb fruits in Spring.

Would you all be better off by spending money on N than on water?

Last summer weather was cool so Atemoya are taking a long time to mature.
My African Pride that were pollinated last June are ready.
My other AP that were pollinated last July are not ready.

The year before my AP were ready by Christmas.

AP with light green skin and a little yellow tint are ready.

Any seedless?

Your tree is small. Leave it alone.
You don't need to trim it to force flowering.
It will flower when mature.
It's nature.

Go to CRFG scion exchange and grab a couple of each varieties for free.

How long does your wetting agent last?

Peat repel water so I add sand to the mix to deal with the issue.

18
Chaffey tree is most cold tolerance, White tree is most heat tolerance.
Seedling of these cross has both features.

19
The felt side traps the roots so it has to face the roots.

You have 2 issues with your pot mix.

There is no Calcium added.
There is no Ca in your fertilizer.
Maybe add some gypsum?

Charcoal will lock up your fertilizer.
You need to add fast release fertilizer to saturate the Charcoal.

Good Luck!
