Attaboya atemoya
« on: August 18, 2019, 10:30:41 AM »
This is my first crop from my Gefner as well as the first from my two sugar apples.

All have produced HEAVILY and having the opportunity to eat this much annona has been a literally dream come true.

Sugar apples have always been very high on my list of fave fruits but the few Geffner I have had this year have been delicious beyond my hopes and expectations.

On the down side my custard apples are stingy and my soursop has lost all of the flowers for the second year but my fingers are crossed for next year :-)

I hope everyone here is having a good year with annona.




Regards,

   Gary

That is promising!

35 or so rollinia's ripening here.

Some guanabana here and there.

First flowers on Geffner. Still no fruit.

Also, waiting on San Pablo custard apple that has been flowering well, but no fruit. Mother-in-law is growing this in the rich soil of Hialeah, hopeful.

My El Bumpo branch has culled its fruit.
Big Sister fruits are under heavy ant attack.

I'm hoping to give the tree a good prune soon and remove the ant issue.

I ate a keitt mango and my first Lisa atemoya and a Na Dai
sugar apple for desert tonight. WOW!
The Lisa atemoya was my favorite fruit I produced last year
and my first taste this year it's probably going to be this year
as well.  I also ate my first dream this morning and it was small
but very good also. Much better then last year when it produced
for the first time. I picked the Na Dai in the picture today and will
eat it tomorrow.

One of our favorite fruits as well. Ate about 40 so far and have about 10 more on the trees. Next year should have some soursop. Gary, what variety of sugar apple do you have, your tree is larger and more upright than most I see around here?
Donít rush, take time and enjoy life and food.

Tommy, both of my trees have been trained more upright than spreading. Once they got to where I could walk under them without bending down to pass under the branches to get to the trunk I let them spread out a bit.

Now I guess they're pretty nicely height / width balanced.

Post more pictures of your harvest?

Half of mines are golf ball sized and others peas sized.
I wonít get to eat them until new year.

I've been training my trees like this too.
You also get a nice shade canopy.
Not fun bending and squatting to check for fruits.

Glad to see you're having some Annona success.
All the Gefners I've had down here have been really good.

Gary you really have quite an impressive collection of rare fruit trees. I can not wait to eat a juicy Lucy from the tree I received from you.

Next season you're welcome to come over and take some from my tree.

Yes Gary is quite generous. In fact i have a couple of his Madam Frances seedlings ( sprouted successfully) growing right now in-ground in my yard and my neighbors here in Arizona.
Thanks for your generosity Gary. I'm very fond of the flavor of Madam Frances. I got to say you gave me some huge fruits that i really enjoyed. I also got to see Juicy Lucy tree. Quite  a good bearer.

You are right about that, a good generous man.. He gave us so much fruit last time I Visited his  place my mom overdosed on jackfruit. He has a backyard fruit paradise in the middle of the suburbs. Itíll make a nice feature piece on a garden show.

Iíd be happy to trade you a geffner for a rollinia 😎. My rollinia tree is growing like crazy, but not a single bloom.

This year has been an unusual one. My Geffner continues to bloom and set fruit, I'm afraid the cool weather coming will kill the small fruits :-(
