Cold tolerant Annonas
« on: December 21, 2022, 03:30:27 PM »
Wondering what would be the top 5 most cold-tolerant Annonas?

1) Annona cherimola
2) ????
3) Annona montana ?
4) ????
5) ????

Bonus points if they are "mountain climate" cold tolerant (i.e. cold & wet) rather than dry cold tolerance. :)

My A. spinescens is holding up on par with my A. montana and A. cherimola.

I haven't done any testing with my plants, but supposedly A. rugulosa can survive hard freezes.

Oooh A. rugulosa sounds tough if it's native to the Araucaria forests.

To answer your question, we'll see how my A. montana does after this coming weekend when here in Tampa we are being told 33 and 35F for lows.  I'm not putting anything in unless our weatherman forecasts 32 or lower.  (This is part of my tropical fruit forest's ongoing cold-tolerance experiment.)

If we get frost though then I'll go out early and spray all my plants down before the sun comes up and hits them to try to prevent leaf burning.

Fingers X-ed!

I had a Rugulosa die this winter but it was 1st year seedling. Another one is still doing good in a more protected location

I second this on A. spinescens, also my illamas and atemoyas are ok. I only got to 39F this year so far..
