Atemoya variety?
« on: October 27, 2012, 05:12:26 PM »
New to forum. Lost tag on atemoya tree, don't know which variety . It's either a Geffner or African Pride.
Any help is appreciated? :)

It looks like an African Pride to me. How old is this tree and where did you buy it?

JF,

I bought it from Roger Meyer in the Winter of 2010, it's probably three years old. I bought a Geffner and African Pride.  I kill one by over watering. The tree have out grown the tag and the tag is missing. The fruit also look like an African Pride to me too.

mrradtech have you tried the fruits or is this the first year it fruits for you? How many fruits is your tree holding?

First year it fruits for me. There about 18 fruits on the tree. Biggest fruit on tree about size of soda can. Last year, there were lot of flowers but no fruits set.

very nice mrradtech. I got my AP almost three years ago and it's holding 10 fruits just like last year. I'm trying to keep mine 10X10 because I have mangos and a sapodilla right next to it.

I'm also going to keep the tree about 10x10. I have a persimmon and  pummelo tree next to it.
