Really nice fruit jungle going on there. Beautiful garden. Wished I would have been able to grow all that when we lived in San Jose, but I guess I didn't put in enough effort.  :-\

Hi Norcal,
Is the fragrance of the cherimoya flower the same as the fruit?
Do you grow Guanabana?
Thank You
Jon

Thank you all kindly!

Regarding the question about the cherimoya flower, the fragrance of the flowers are amazing, but I think that the flavor is a little bit different than the fragrance.

Everything looks really good!  I was wondering, about how many years did it take for your seedling green sapote to flower?

I can't say with 100 percent certainty. I was given the seedling tree in 2012, it was about 3 or 4 feet tall I think it may have been 3 or so years at that time.. so it's getting to the point where it flowers now.. this year I only saw one flower ( but the tree is between 14 and 16 feet tall so I can't really inspect any higher branches) I am anticipating better bloom and maybe even fruit set in this upcoming year!
