What variety/species of anonna is this?
« on: October 12, 2022, 10:42:46 AM »
One woman from BG is selling seedlings from this, shes labeled it as a cherimoya but the leaves on them are more pointier, just like the ones on the tree with the fruit, which doesnt look like a cherimoya to me. She said that the seedlings are from this particular fruiting plant. I ordered 2 and just want to know what i have, is it a sugar apple instead of cherimoya?
The tree is located somewhere in Miami ,Florida, incase this matters .

Many Cubans call A. Reticulata "Cherimoya"

I think more like "Chirimoya", not "Che".

I got the seedlings yesterday, anything particular that i should know regarding growing them, are they like a cherimoya, or more tropical and tender? I red that thay are not as drought tollerant, true?
I do have much experience with cherimoya, hope this one is as easy....
