Mongo sized Atemoya
« on: January 20, 2012, 08:04:59 PM »
How big do Atemoyas get in Florida? This Priestly was grown by Josan Nursery in Lantana. Weighed in at 3.25lbs.  It was delicious. Has anybody seen on bigger than this one?

I've seen some that approached 2 lbs, but nothing that big.

That's definitely the biggest i've ever seen.

Noel,
Remember when were at TREC and Dr. Crane told us about spraying the sugar apples with GA3 to get larger fruit? I wonder if that would work with the atemoyas to get larger fruit too.

Noel,

Priestly atemoya?

That's what it looks to me...I've seen one that big on ground at fruit and spice park, it was amazing as well!
