Cherilata in Southern California
« on: May 03, 2023, 09:51:05 AM »
These have been on the tree since last fall and stayed on all winter. Finally they started to soften up this last week.

Fruits are transitioning to red now.
How long is this process to get to your stage?

Flavor isnt as good as regular cherimoya IMO.  I put the tree in the chipper.

Same season as La Habra Late.

Not much other competition from the annona gang this time of year.

Thatísa bummer!  I grafted three scions into my cherimoya last summer and theyíve all taken and starting to flower now. Iíll give them a chance for a couple years but thatís not a promising report.

At least I still have cherimoya!

I have a nice young Cherilata tree that I grafted on cherimoya rootstock last year. Very vigorous. Will probably get fruit this season. Actually it set and aborted a couple last year so it appears precocious. I have started giving annonas 2 or 3 years before deciding on fruit quality. I have had several varieties of cherimoya were very average on young trees but become excellent by year 3 in my yard. Fino de Jete, Knight, and Dr. White did not perform well early on.

I've recently grafted some Painter's cherilata.  But I hear there's also another cherilata. Anyone grow or tasted them and could note the differences?

So, I cut into one yesterday and it tasted really good. It tasted like my Kimber Red Reticulata with the firmness and less seeds than a cherimoya. Not sure if mine is a "Painters", I'm definitely going to keep growing it. The fruit stayed on the tree since last Fall.

It seems like 100% of cherilatas are Painter's because Painter is the name of the guy that first created the hybrid. I believe all of them derive from his original?

Do you have to manually pollinate the flowers?

My trees are manicured so they need hand pollination.

Anyone, and many people have, can create a cherimoya reticulata cross. This is a popular one created by John painter. There are other cherilata available. They are not all the Painter Cherilata.
