Interesting idea Carlos.
I get good takes without bagging but I think I will have to try and go for even better performance.

I have had several annonas push only to dry up and fail.  I have attributed in part to me breaking the union while unwrapping early so as not the girdle the graft and re-wrapping, but it would be nice if it were simply getting the humidity right.

Far fewer mangos than last year.  No lychees.  Avocados are looking good.
Got some lychee, not a whole lot but some.
Unfortunately, the birds have found them, squirrels too.

I hope people understand that giving advice to such questions could make them liable and opened up to lawsuits.
Are opinions OK? or personal experience??   :)

Poor season here too, the only standout in my yard is the Choc anon.

The last two days have been terrible for my already poor mango season.

Yesterday we had hail stones and moderate winds, dropped a few fruits.  Not too bad.
Today heavy rain with vicious winds, somewhat localized, broke a branch of my Choc Anon loaded with fruits.  So a poor year even poorer.

I will take the rain though it has been dry the last several months.

I see Raul logged in today around 6pm, did he message anyone back?  I still haven't heard back, just wondering.
Use email, he replies to all my emails.

Good, if you have some time, you may want to trench around the tree (where you hope to take the root ball) and leave it for some time before move day.

I recall reading somewhere that this helps.  Look it up or someone who knows why please fill in the gaps.

I am sure there is something you can apply that will get rid of the pest.
Ranging from diatomaceous earth to some nasty stuff.
Google "treating pest in potted plant" or something like that and I am sure you will find all kinds of remedies.  Hydrogen peroxide, insecticidal soap and diatomaceous earth will come up in a number of the solutions.
There may be some other household items that can work as well.

How large is the tree?

How old and how long in the ground?

Do you have to remove immediately or do you have time to prep before you move.

Choc anon, Beverly, and one of mine, so far unnamed.
There may be one or two others (possibly Fairchild,) but I will have to walk the yard to check.

I have 3 trees that threw out sporadic blooms in May, one or two just starting in the last day or so.
It is not a large bloom with only a few tips on the trees blooming.  It was jut a surprise to see blooms starting this late.
It is a poor year for fruit set, I assume the trees are just confused.

Thank you all, hope your grafts take.

Here is some fun reading if you plan on grafting.  https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=16673.msg211489#msg211489

Now regarding your question, you can grow annona from seed.  It may not be true from seed,  You can graft named varieties onto your seedling (best in spring) and know what you are getting for sure. 

I have grown both in a pot and in the ground.  Both work.  I don't know about nematode vulnerability but perhaps Har or someone else on the forum who grows in FL may be able to help with that part of your question.

As the mango story turns.

So I am on track for a poor mango season, good flush poor fruit set.  I will have a ton of Choc Anon which is a monster for fruiting in my yard but little of anything else.

So I did a grafting demo the other day and offered the left over scions.  Got more interest and went to cut some prepped scions I had not taken for the demo and low and behold, few blooms on 3 trees.  Including the  Choc Anon which already has 3 generations of fruit this year.  Other trees are flushing vegetative growth which is the norm for this time of the year for me.

Strange indeed.  Anyone in South Florida still getting bloom?

Strange year, you are picking mango and I am getting late bloom.

Thanks, done.
They are separated, now I wait and see if I just wiped out my cache or if I have multiple to select from .

25
Soursop are pretty tough. I've separated more than 20 from a 1 gallon pot.
How large were the seedlings when you separated them?
