Help Identifying Cherimoya Fruit
« on: April 06, 2020, 09:36:19 PM »
Hi everyone,

Just curious if the collective here can help me narrow down what Cherimoya cultivar I enjoyed last weekend. The Cherimoya had strong notes of bubblegum and mint. The people at the roadside stand where I purchased the fruit from could not identify the variety. Which cultivar is known for these flavors? I have included a photo for reference. Thanks for your time.

Mostly el bumpo.
If you don't mind me asking, where is this road stand in San Diego?

It's a little late in the season for a cherimoya, I'd be interested to find out what varieties produce at this time, or whether this was caused by timely leaf stripping.

Looks similar to Sabor, but I wouldn't describe the taste of Sabor that way. Maybe off season fruit.

Thanks for your comment. Sure, no problem - this was purchased from Farm Stand West in Escondido, CA.

I am also surprised to find many places still selling cherimoyas right now but still happy regardless that the season is extended. Unfortunately varietal/cultivar info isn't mentioned at these places. Thanks for the comment, I'll have to find a sabor 'moya tree this year or at least find some scionwood later on!

My trees are still producing lots cherimoyas.  Its from pollinating late in the season and Dr white seems to ripen later.

The one in the circle looks like an atemoya.  In SoCal, they are available but not as abundant.  I still have one on my tree waiting for picking.  I visit a nursery specialize in atemoya.  They have plenty of plants with fruits.  I believe they will harvest them all soon to get the plant ready for flowerings except a few for show and tell.

Magnolia Gardens Nursery in Garden Grove at the corner of Katella and Magnolia.
10722 Magnolia Ave.
Stanton, CA 92804
714-657-2291

Garden Grove or Stanton?  I got confused because they have it both city depend on the source.

I bought a Red and Green Geffner Atamoya at this nursery.  They are pricey but I believe they have better deal with large selection.  They also have Australian Atemoya and many tropical fruits and vegetables.
