Diploid Asimina/Anona hybrids that Usirius is trying to produce will most probably be non fertile since two parents have different chromosome numbers.
But crossing the combination of two tetraploids will give a tetraploid hybrid with balanced chromosome number. This could be done either by a generation of tetraploid Asimina and Anona by colchicine  or oryzalin treatment and than crossing such plants, or by pollination of hybrid  atemoyas with an excess of Asimina pollen.

Triloba Tracker,
I do not think that triploid asimina will be very fertile like triploid citrus varieties.
