Wild Annona from Dominican Republic
« on: May 04, 2022, 08:37:40 PM »
Hello Annona Lovers-

On a recent trip to the Dominican Republic I managed to sneak away from the scheduled activities to do a bit of fruit hunting around the resorts and happened upon an Annona tree-

It appeared to be growing submerged in salt water, (we were on the beach) which led me to believe it is Annona glabra but the one (past) ripe fruit I found was yellow which I did not think was true of glabra. The seeds also appear to be white around the outside with a dark center which also seems to be different from what I have found online. When I asked the people around about it all they would tell me was that they didn't serve it at the hotel.

First person to ID gets a pack of 5 seeds

I'm at an absolute loss. Looks like glabra to me.

No thanks here in FL the glabra are endemic, but the annona urbaniana seeds I got from digi recently are sprouting 👍

The local pond apple is known as bagá. Nice find man it's not as common as in FL here
Also the local type seems to be a bit less vigorous.

Awesome thanks dude!

I was wandering through groves of mango and cashew and then these suckers popped out at me!

I will plant a bunch of seeds in the keys

It was too ripe for me to taste but it smelled like pineapple, texture seemed a bit gritty
