I agree, ruling out pollen induced variance, it looks quite similar to the Leo#1 that Jon Verdick is growing at his Encanto farm.

kh0110: There was a greenhouse in Japan that was completely void of insects where they tested the likelihood of annona producing fruit in the absence of a pollinator, I believe El Bumpo was the variety of choice, and they found that the more humid the environment, the more fruit were produced (without pollinator present).

I figured this post would be a decent place to report in.

I have a few annonas from JF's collection planted in-ground and while they might not have ample space, most seem to be doing well enough.

First to fruit Birula and Calastro (I might have picked these too early, but a few were missing from the tree when i went out today)
No hand pollination this year, never got around to it.


Still waiting on RH3, Arka Sahan, La Habra Sun, Hunucma Amarillo, Cuban Red
I have Giant Atis and Hawian Pink but they are tucked in between trees and or struggle for light.

How did they taste?  I'm assuming the redish one is the Birula?

Is RH3 the same as LM-3?

Arka Sahan


...

@skhan - You either mislabeled or got a mislabeled Arka Sahan. That is more of an AP. Arka Sahan is like the photo of my avatar.

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?

Yeh, I picked most of the AP.
This was the only Calostro that was ready.

All the other annonas on the Tropic Sun, RH3 and Calostro are under a tennis ball in size.
When i had gefner trees I would pick most of the fruit in October-November, so this is a little early

AP should be around 2 lb each at harvest.
They mature 2 months after TS.

I donít know what you have there.

I got these scions as Arka Sahan, it clearly isn't.
Looks like AP to me, but I'm open to a proper ID lol.
I started getting Tropic sun in early July so that might check out.

I know the different regions will change some of the habits, but i don't know by how much.

all these were naturally pollinated.
