I've got another inca red fruit left on the tree that I'll be sampling.  I may just wait and let it drop off.

Iíve been distributing ďInca RedĒ scion since 2015 at least so other tff members may have fruited it.
I scoured my records and Unfortunately could not find out who I got this from originally.
I havenít fruited it myself so time will tell how good a fruit it really is by hearing tasting accounts from a few different treeís.

Inca Red originally came from Axel of Cloudforest Cafe forum, who is an occasional member here, and had previously posted many times about it.  I have one for many years now.  It hasn't grown very much, but it's mainly because it's been stunted in a pot.  It hasn't been productive nor much red in color, but it is very tasty.

Thanks Norm. That makes sense, Axel lived in Santa Cruz in the past and I did my first grafts at his place.
Too bad the Cloudforestcafe.com & 10+ years of data and info compiled is no longer a searchable resource for sub tropical fruit growers.

Hereís a Mohan Cherimoya. I brought it to the cherimoya tasting but it wasnít ripe so I let it ripen a few more days and then refrigerated it. Iíve had a lot of cherimoyas ripening and falling off the tree and some are knocked off by animals and I eat these injured fruit first so this fruit is a bit past itís prime.






It tasted like an average cherimoya with good sweetness (19.2% Brix) and a little acidity. Iíve had this cherimoya before when it was a lot better. Iím pretty sure this fruit was picked about a week or more early as there was no light green or yellowish green blush on the skin.

Here is a Radhica Cherimoya, same story as the Mohan, too many cherimoyas, too little time. This fruit tasted better than the Mohan. It was sweeter (21.3% Brix) and had better acid balance. It also had a slight pineapple flavor and an aftertaste that was a bit bubblegum perfume like. This was a good fruit and I wish I would have eaten it at peak ripeness. This fruit was also picked a bit under ripe but it was still good.

Sounds like fun. Would love to see how different the many cultivars taste side by side.  Iíve had a few, but they always taste like Ďcherimoyaí to me, without any noticeably differentiated qualities.

I'm up for it again. I've got a few good varieties, not sure when they will be ready.

My stuff isnt ready yet, I didnt get motivated enough to do any hand pollination until late July or August.  But they should be getting there in about a month.  Nov 20 should be a good day to do it. 

We can do it here I dont mind or if you guys want to do it at the beach or a park or something we can do that too.  Let me know.  I realize its a long drive to my place for many of you.

If I can make it on the day that's chosen, I'd love to come -- assuming freeloaders are allowed.  This fall my little piece of land is producing nothing ... nada ... zip ... zero. 

Thanks for the offer, Brad!

[Edit] I'm looking for a good side dish that'll complement the high-sugar feast.  If anyone has a suggestion, please shoot me a PM/email.

I just checked.  You can still find some of cloudforestcafe.com's web pages by searching for the site on https://archive.org/web/
