When to harvest Ilama?
« on: June 29, 2020, 01:02:52 PM »
I have a couple of Ilamas on my tree (first time they've held fruits) and I wanted to know when is the best time to harvest them?

What are the telltale signs that I need to look out for?

Thanks!


Regards,
Sam

Did you hand pollinate?

Thanks

Yes I did.....only 2 fruits held from about 5 flowers. The flower was similar in structure to a custard apple but much bigger and a beautiful 'purplish' color.
