lisa or gefner atemoya ?
« on: October 21, 2017, 05:51:13 PM »
Hi everyone I was curious if anyone could tell if this is a gefner or lisa atemoya by the picture. I bought the tree label as a 15 gallon lisa. First fruit to harvest the first year. I'm aware if it is a lisa it's suppose to change to a pinkish grey when maturing. If not and it was sold to me wrong is it ready? Or do I have to wait till the bumps separate like a sugar apple?

Yes lol I'm sure with all the trees they can have a mix up once in a while
But do you think it's close to be picked?

I wouldn't necessarily make this judgment by the appearance of one fruit.  It definitely looks like its not Lisa but it doesn't have to be Gefner.

I own a Lisa and  I had a geffner that died. The Lisa had much larger leaves. The fruit
will tell later but it is too soon to tell by the fruit. I had 6 fruit earlier this year and
they looked similar to the picture before they ripened. Actually only 2 ripened and the others
were destroyed by Irma. Eventually the fruit turned a greyish pink color when it ripened.

The leaves are huge on this tree. How long does the season last here in South Florida.
