Can you help me ID these annonas, and some other advice..
« on: January 12, 2013, 10:29:12 AM »
I have these two annonas planted 1.5 years ago. Tags are missing now, and I'm 90% sure it is Poshte (bigger needs to go into ground asap).




Also, my Pedalai got unknown leave damage about 9 month ago and hardly growing since than, but not dying. Is that normal size for 18 months seedlings?


For how much longer I can keep these black sapotes in the pots?  Thanks in advance

Not likely Poshte--- too prominently veined and wide at the tip--- unless it is a very different variety from the ones I have seen.

It looks more like some wide-leafed Annona reticulata varieties.

Looks like a rollinia to me. I wouldn't worry about the Pedalai, looks very healthy. They're a bit slow at first before they take off like crazy at around 3 foot height. They like partial shade when small.

nope, look at the bark...it has bumps...can't be rollinia.

definitely reticulata.
