Id check for scale or mealy bugs because the ants could be farming them. Ants generally don't seem to be an issue on my annonas. They mainly target my abiu.

As I was posting this i notice this looked really similar to the SAP.
I'll wait till in sizes up to determine. I never order a standard AP since you can find it around here.
Who do you tell the differences in SAP and AP?

Most of the fruitlets fell off.
Only have a handful left, I'm assuming its normal for the first time fruiting though
It starting to flower again.

I've tasted a few of the aborted fruit on the ground, still sour.

The only ppks that were washed out for me are early season ones. Along with most varieties.
Just had a few more pickering that were excellent

I've noticed this too with about a 3rd of the Pickerings from my two trees.

Great Job Carlos!!
This is giving me the confidence to try some myself

I'm assuming these are from grafted trees

Top looks like a Glenn
Bottom looks like a pickering

I'm not sure about the middle

I know when Dr Noris was at Fairchild she was talking about the upcoming wild mango hybrids. I figured these came out if the same project. I'd assume Dr Campbell was part of this before he left and kept it going in his own orchard too

Thank you for the trees man! Ed Doyle

Thanks, it was great meeting you.

Thanks for all the support guys. When some of the rarer fruit start ripening I'll post some videos on the subject.

It's not easy to find them at nice sized trees in nurseries.
Even harder to find them grafted.
Occasionally zhpp varieties them (I'm not sure about if it was grafted though)
I'd check with Lara, he usually carries rarer things
Zill's abius are seedlings, I checked with them

Thanks Satya. How the season going btw

Thanks for the review.
I've been meaning to get another Soflo persimmon so I might give him a call.

I agree with fruitmonger.

This looks like the normal cycle for an Annona flower that wasn't pollinated
It looks like the tree has only started leaving out.
How did it fare with the cold in Lakeland this year?
The tree looks healthy enough from what i can see.

I'd imagine the cold is giving the tree and normal pollinators a later start this year.
I would try hand pollinating and start throwing your fruit scraps under the tree to get the beetle population back up.

Not further east. Likely not to far away. Planning on getting a slightly bigger lot but will have less tree.
Going to do a 15ft spacing for the mangos

Great work Brad!!

23
Can you show some pictures of the damaged flowers?
Also, do you have a a picture of the overall tree

Just to get ahead of the Annona common name confusion
This looks like Annona squamosa (Typically called Sugar Apple in the US)
Annona reticulata is typically referred to as Custard apple here

24
I'm in the think of mango season right now, I was hoping to do some tasting videos but I'm not really sure if it's worth it.
Maybe a live stream would be better with some Q&A would be better?

25
This is good stuff Rob.
It would be great if we can organize this all by the end of the season with photos and write ups.
I'd be happy to help.
