Container growth
« on: December 22, 2020, 08:04:32 PM »
Hi there!

Just was wondering if I can grow cherimoya trees and/or other Annonas in containers, for reason of lack of much space?

I have fruited Cherimoya in 15 gallons. They can be kept in 15 gallons for a number of years.

I have soursop, rollinia and custard apple flowering in 20 gallon pots in my greenhouse.  I had cherimoya too, but I couldn't keep it trained short enough. Probably try again with it when I have room.
