Pollination
« on: August 07, 2019, 09:06:12 PM »
Does anyone know if one can use the pollens from Atemoya to pollinate cherimoya and vice versa?

Thanks for the quick reply.  Would that create a hybrid fruit?  Have you tried?  How does it taste?

Atemoya is already a hybrid (Annona squamosa Annona cherimola). So pollinating cherimoya with atemoya will still be a hybrid. It will most likely taste similar to Atemoya ( just speculating).
