Hello from Hawaii

Adam (flying fox fruits) sent me ďdreamĒ scions about 3-4 years ago and I was able to graft them on to cherimoya rootstock.   Fast forward a few years and I got my first fruits this fall. 3 to be exact.  I definitely had to hand pollinate, and I bagged the fruits. 

But WOW! The flavor of this fruit is amazing.  Probably the best atemoya Iíve ever had.  And yeah Iím gonna go ahead and say this is an atemoya just based on the shape of the fruit and the large lumpy shoulders it had.   Very few seeds. Great consistency.  Just wow. Worth all the effort





With 3 acres of prime real estate for growing tropicals... why not create my own garden of eden?? Work in progress

Frank,

    What variety are those two fruits? Are they Dream atemoya? They look very tasty and great looking fruit to boot.

Hey Vince
Here in SoCal we call dream by its original name Arka Sahan....we believe they are the same variety

lol Dream is a seedling, so it's not the same.

I wonder if anyone can verify if they had distributed budwood of Arka to South America (Peru) soon after it had been released?

I suppose Dream could have been a seedling of Arka that stayed true, I've seen this happen with some of the variable atemoyas that are not true from seed, like Lisa (48-26)...so every now and then you get a seedling that is just like the parent, or not much different, from a tree that normally produces highly variable offspring.
 
Wayne said he planted the original Dream from seed, and he's not a liar.

Hey Adam
Scions can get mixed up and varieties renamed by mistake it happens all the time but as I remember Dream was advertised as dream cherimoya which is absolutely false. This is clearly an atemoya whatever name you want to call it.

it being a seedling of Arka that stayed somewhat true is a logical explanation, if indeed, Wayne didn't mix things up.

i think everyone pretty much agreed a long time ago that it's most likely an atemoya.
