My First Cherimoya Fruit
« on: December 23, 2021, 09:03:44 PM »
I just got into this tropical fruit growing hobby this spring, and a lot of my trees I purchased as grafted 3 gallon plants. A couple of these were already flowering this summer, so I had a booth cherimoya and AP atemoya set fruit around August. For whatever reason the fruit on my booth dropped a couple of days ago, not sure if I overwatered or overfertilized it, as I think 4 months is slightly premature for this plant. Regardless, I sat it out on the counter and it ripened within a couple of days. I gave it a taste, and while it did taste like cherimoya, I wasn't very impressed. A touch bitter and overall not very sweet. Very seedy and little flesh. My trees are larger now and I know more about what I'm doing, so I'm hoping that I'll have better luck with my next harvest.
