looks like you got it on steroids, lol. start pruning so no branch is longer than 12", you need to train it to stay at 6 feet max height each year after pruning.

actually my grafts from March have grown 3 feet as well, while temps in my area dipped to below 45 several times and we just got started with tipple digit temps.  I will have to prune as well.

Tony, right now its full bloom, I will have Scions late August which will allow you with ample time to graft and get couple flushes out. current growth is tender and will harden by then. I will have all varieties that are on top of the post. Get in touch again in Mid August.

You think I should top this 6' tree back to a foot, really?  Yes, I do want to keep it under 8' but I'm also a pretty good judge as to vigor and recognizing short versus long internodes.  Those internodes seem pretty short to me.

Also, it's a magnet for mealybugs.  After screwing with a few here and there and then finding leaves white with them got the big guns out and soil drenched with imidacloprid and sprayed the bastards with permethrin.

Will the pruned wood make for good budwood now?  It's pretty green and tender.

I do green fresh on green wood graft all the time and its instant hit. make sure first you strip leaves and expose leaf nodes, wait until those nodes swell and then you harvest wood and graft it. this will help you prune.

on prune. yes, I really mean it, do not let any single branch grow longer than 12-18 inches. you want a bushy low height wide canopy. trust me, train your tree now. Lot of folks make a mistake of having main trunk get 6 foot tall. cherimoya trees in my hard start branching at 6 to 12 inches above ground.

Hard to keep the upright shoots at 18.....ideally you want to keep yr trees at 9-12 prune heavy in spring and tip in fall to control size.

Nice looking trees Frank.
How tall do you let them get?  Reason I am asking is my father has a tree that needs tipping and pruning.
The tree has never had either.  It is a tall tree about 16 to 18 ft. 
It is it not a full healthy looking tree like yours but does have a lot of flowers rt now.
I am actually trying to get out there to his house to hand pollinate.  My father was not aware that hand pollinating was necessary.  He has only managed to get a handful of fruit in the last couple of yrs.
I myself am new to Cherimoya.  Have never tasted one but am looking forward to trying for the first time.
Behl, you, and a few others have inspired me to try out more than just mangos.

Here is a photo of the "Cumbe" cherimoya at a market in Arequipa, Peru a few years ago. I have a few seedlings going, but no fruit yet. Does anyone have photos of their "Cumbes"?

Hey Behl:

My PayPal order was placed on the 11th.  Was I too late to participate in this round of cuttings shipments? I sent a PM before ordering, but have no way of knowing if it was received by you or not.
I understand if the current worldwide situation has changed your ability to take  / ship cuttings and you need to process refunds for those that didn't get in early enough to pre-order.

Thanks for all you do, and stay safe!

Richard

I haven't had a response from him even prior to March 11 (already paypal him).  For now I will just wait and see if and when he will respond.

Everyone who ordered and paid, I sent confirming email. If you didnt get email, then I didnt see anything in Paypal for you. Please contact me if you paid and did not get email. Check spam as well. I sent email as BCC so your email does not get exposed.

UPDATE: Due to Coronavirus situation and trying not to expose myself and my family, I pushed back shipping to coming Monday so I can do all orders tomorrow and ship them out, one time dropoff to USPS Post Office.

I will stop taking orders starting tomorrow 12 PM PST, those who have not sent payment OR ordered, now is your last opportunity. There is also fear of USPS shutting down in future if things escalate.
