Cherilata taste test.
« on: April 16, 2020, 12:26:17 PM »
John Painter shared a cherilata with me. In my opinion, it was better than any sugar apple. A raspberry sugar taste with little or no fiber. Very few seeds. Each bite was better than the next. An absolutely beautiful fruit both in appearance and taste. Outstanding John!

Johnís the man! That fruit looks absolutely incredible. I will try to use his Hybrid in future breeding experiments. I just love the Annonas with the pinkish red coloration!  Great work John!

This is on top of my favorite fruit list.

If I were stranded on an island and could only have one fruit be there and that was my only source of food for the rest of my life, I take John's Cherilata hands down. What an excellent contribution to this world!

Nice picture--- reminds me of my favorite temoylata, the 4--5: 'Priestley' atemoya  X 'Fairchild Purple' Annona reticulata.

Which cherimoya variety was the seed parent?

Just some random seeding from california that would make fruit here around up to tennis ball size.That tree did fade away.

Good looking fruit but this is a reticulata. If it was cross with a cherimoya it would look like Lisa or 4718 this has no cherimoya features. This is what a cherimoya cross with reticulata looks like.

You seem like you are in denial that this delicious cross exists for some reason ???

I have a graft that has survived through winter and has pushed but it is very small. Looks like it will survive our climate as long as itís not crazy cold.

Cherilata has no reticulata taste,subacid very pronounced raspberry overtones.Now I have crosses of lisa x tikal that have reticulata overtones and pink mammoth x tikal that had one fruit this winter but died on the stem just before maturity(forced ripe) not to good(not sweet)but I could taste reticulata in it.They had soft flesh,now the Cherilata is very firm fleshed.
 I have feeling it is going to like California's climate more than Florida's as it seems the fruit mature  better in the cool weather

Jf Okay but it will have to be when someone comes by with their phone.I gave up mine like 5 years ago,I found it to be a pain in @ss so I would leave it shut off 98% of the time.The leaves will show its freak.Found a 1.2lb on the ground this morning.In my area I think sugarlata has more commercial potential(hot humid)lowland.I have seed of these from this winter to plant(squamosa x reticulata var. Sarteneja)
