Did anyone go? I made it down and it was my first time tasting Cherimoya. I should have known it would be a blind tasting. Padi registrations received boxes of fruit to take home, which we hand picked. I tried to get a veriety. I have no idea what is what though!! I would appreciate any help in trying to ID these. I have been trying to find old posts or old photos of the past tastings with fruit labeled to try and figure it out. I believe that our favorite tastings were El Bumpo and Oxheart, would love help from the Cherimoya gurus!! This tasting was fun as we had a tour of their orchard and got to pick Persimmons after. For those who regularly attend, they did say that due to timing of this event (which was the first in December) that they had some varieties that have no been offered at tastings in the past. Lastly, any advice on determing peak ripeness?

Interesting that this year it was a blind tasting event.
The one time I attended the tasting fruit was labeled.
Did you turn in your taste evaluation form?
Maybe they will send you the results of the tasting evaluation.

I set it in my box when selecting my fruit and it got closed up. I did forward a copy to Tammy, though. I tried to ask if we would be informed later. The results would be tallied I was told, but I wasnít clear on whether they would be identified beyond their tasting numbers.

Of the ones pictured did you have a favorite?

Yes, the two pictured on the tasting table were my favorite. The other pictures fruits are the ones we brought home and are not ripe/havenít been eaten yet. I was hoping to ID those too at least.

I just realized there are three, so the 3-2, and R6-T11 were the best IMO. Those I hope someone can recognize, but I am guessing El Bumpo and Oxheart from pictures Iíve been able to find.

I was there as well and liked R3-T1 and R6-T11.  R6-T11 is most likely El Bumpo.  I emailed Tammy asking for variety names.

What's the point of a blind tasting unless you find out how the varieties were rated???

It is useful when doing research.  I am sure eventually the results will be revealed.

I was there for the tour/tasting also.  R6T11 is probably El Bumpo and R3T2 is probably Ott.  Of those you are holding, the third one down is probably Lucida and the fourth one down is El Bumpo.  They didn't label the tasting table fruits so that there would not be a bias in the tasting for those varieties that are well known.  They alternate years when the fruits to taste are labelled or not.

Pick 3-6 are from Rudy Haluza collections. he has donated more than 20 of his private varieties to Screc throughout the years. Pic #3 is an AtemoyA I suspect African pride and the unnamed cherimoya is from his collection at his villa park property.

Thank you! Hopefully they release them at a later date.

Thank you! How neat that there is an Atemoya as well. Is there a trick to telling when they are perfectly ripe other than checking for slight give?

Yea, we were talking about R3-T2 and how the first plate of it was not good but the second plate of it was fantastic.  I wonder which one was picked earlier.

They seem to just fall off the tree if not picked in my yard.  Those ones that fall off are perfectly ripe so I don't really see how they could be picked too late here.
