Cherimoya in FL anecdote
« on: Today at 07:52:26 AM »
Earlier this year I pollinated my el bumpo with Lisa atemoya pollen and got two flowers to set. Last week the fruit fell off prematurely. Pictured is two small el bumpos left and center next to a small geffner. Both el bumpos softened up and the larger one was edible and nice tasting, no grit with a almost bubble gum flavor. The seeds look viable and Iím excited to plant these out and see what comes of these hybrid cherimoya x atemoya seeds.

Nice work Joe.
I've noticed the same thing on my RH3, it looks like your true cherimoya made it further though.
Looking forward to that cross

Good luck, hopefully you get a winner.

Interesting how when pollinated by Lisa, the El Bumpos look absolutely nothing like the ones in San Diego.

That said, the flavor and texture descriptions are much how I would describe it, it varies year to year, but that's a normal flavor profile for the B.
