Cherimoya don't flower in high temperature area.

You could do a trial to force flowering by removing all leaves before the coldest month in your area.
Hopefully the cold would remove vigor from the cherimoya to force flowering.

They are the same.

Immature AP is bland.
AP have around 50 seeds.
Best way is to thin the fruits from the tree.
Let the fruits grow to 2 lb.
This way you spit less seeds per bite.

55
Those look so pretty.

56
I got 3 blind buds so far.

Graft the whole stick is safer.

57
1 friend bought Taiwan atemoya there.
Another bought cherimoya seedlings there.

I brought my daughters there.
They were nagging to leave.
I left after 5 minutes.
I didn't get a chance to walk around.

They had a few hundreds atemoya trees.

58
Group buy closed?

59
NVM.
Amazon put “not ship to your location” in a different location than the other item.

60
Amazon won’t ship to me.
If I buy 12 rolls of 1/2” Amazon would ship.
Both from same seller.
Weird.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: anyone used this grafting scissor?

I used it on cherimoya.
I did 3 Omega grafts.
2 took 1 failed.
Cut pretty well on soft stocks.

On certain stocks saddle grafts are better than Omega.

My stocks and scions are not close in size so I do cleft or T-budding.

I want to cull reticulata.
How do you tell that the seedlings are reticulata from the hybrids?

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

65
I root my DF in a bucket with 1" of water.

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

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: quantity/method of gypsum application
« on: February 08, 2020, 10:13:18 PM »
I paid $14 for 40 lb for gypsum in the garden area.
Gypsum in the other area of the store was expensive.

67
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 “Cotton Candy”?

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?

It’s nice to throw a rock and hit water!
Carry on with your fixers.

Brad,

I’ve 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 won’t 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.
