For past two years I have been grafting these but only produced 6 due to rootstock/scion qty limitations, I got my original tree from Fruitscapes, but will be grafting some more this spring and will make available in the buy/sell section once ready. DM me around July if you are still looking 👍.

What is the ideal rootstock for Cherilata. Cherimoya or Reticulata? Both size up well , specially the reticulata.

Pond apple has worked well for me as root stock for Cherilata.

I am sure other things will work but the one I put on pond apple owns the tree like its own.  The leaves are still green while almost all the other annonas in my yard are looking ragged.

Pretty sure that one that Joe hooked me up with is on guanabana.

It is doing well, couple months in-ground, but not doing much above ground yet. Can tell it is firmly rooted, so think all the action this time of year is underground.

Good to know, Guanabana stays green almost year round for me, unless we get a very cold winter.

Anyway, perhaps it is time to update some of these old compatibility report posts, perhaps this one.

CTMIAMI  in Florida Reticulata in Cali Cherimoya.Reticulata is more tropical,more resistance to pathogens in our climate.Pond apple I'm still not sure,but does look promising.Lisa X Tikal hybrids grafted well on pond apple,maybe a good interstock growing sugar apple in wet?

Forgot to mention, have 2 nice branches of Cherilata grafted on an established Gefner atemoya tree. Had several takes, but think the others rotted out due to poor post-graft care. Seems to be doing well so far.

How was that fruit!?!?

Interesting Observation: I have been watching the Pond Apple tree GLabra, and also the Annona Montana at the Tropical Station.  They are very similar, but the Glabra looks like hell (they don"t irrigate much in the winter) and the Montana looks great.  I would imagine if you irrigate in the winter you may use Glabra.  Seems like Glabra does not tolerate well our rocky soil during the dry season.  I have quite a few seedlings of both now to experiment.

Quite possibly re rocky soils in winter.
Interesting I will like to know what you find out from the experiment.

For my location, my glabra sits in an area that is saturated part of the year and is still wet this late into the dry season.  I use it for everything I can because it allows me to use those wet areas of the yard.

I may try out Montana rootstock sometime, but for now I have lots of glabra and space I could use for little else.

Cherilata grows well on cherimoya rootstock.

Baboom! Def add a taste report when itís ready. Looks beautiful 👍

-Joe
I ate the cherilata last night. I picked it as soon as it started to soften and
it took a few days to fully ripen
The last one got eaten by a raccoon.
It was a wonderful fruit. The only downfall was it was a little seedy.
It did not have segments like a sugar apple
I cut it in quarters and the seeds were easy to remove. I then cut the
skin off in one piece and I never tasted anything quite like it. It had a
sweet berry flavor and a little grit. The grit was not objectionable and added
texture. It was unique and left me wanting more. I have one left on the
tree that is only half grown

Cherilata itself may be good rootstock; has anyone tried?

Fruitscapes has about a hundred young trees grafted on pond apple in stock now. Looked good out in full sun. Some are already blooming at less than 2 feet tall. Bought 3 for myself.
 Someone asked me if I had tasted it before. I said no, I never saw any fruit for sale at John Painter's. I was told his Mom eats them all since it is her favorite fruit at that time of year. I ratted her out in front of her daughter today and she giggled and gave a sly smile. Can't blame her. Great lady, always enjoy seeing her. Gave her a mango today she hadn't tried before.(Edgar)

Mike, very nice fruit !

Orkine, I grew the seeds you sent me last year and they look good, see my photos. When do you think I should separate the seeds into individual pots?

I'm in SoCal and will be grafting the Cherilata on pond apple when these seedlings grow larger in another year or two.

I killed 5 pond apples that had very nice calipers already, maybe half inch, bought them from silent natives nursery. they were left in regular rainy conditions but wasn't enough for this plant. I think if i ever use them again I will keep them in soak trays.
