Have access to some 30 year old (according to carer) Annonidium manii Jungelsop tree's  and want to vegetative propagate them. They have not set fruit so maybe pollination is an issue becuase there's plenty of flowers.
Please share advice on marcotting annonace or what type of species that could be suitable as root stock for a. manii.
Maybe there's a more common african annona that would be suitable as root stock.

a. manii is quite different form a. reticulata and a. muricata, sqamosa and soncoya,  so I don't know if those would work. But will try in the mean while.
And maybe in some time I have some to report myself :)

this thread had some usefull info but nothing on marcotting or rootstock etc.

there's a thread somewhere of people's experiences with grafting different annona species onto different annona root stocks - hope it helps

can't find it in the search but can find threads with questions of root stock for soncoya and reticulata for example.

I have heard that this species can be dioecious: separate trees for male or female.  Also have heard that some trees can be monoecious.

I tried grafting with fresh, leafy scion-wood from Bill Whitman's trees, in the 1990's.  I no longer remember details about the root-stocks, but presumably included Soursop and Mountain-Soursop.  None lived.

thanks for finding the link driftwood, definetly some usefull info there.

thanks for the input Guanabanus. Maybe all my friends tree's come from a single fruit (with same parantage) and thus not able to pollinate each other? and/or it's of the monoecious type as you have heard and none have the female flowers or working female parts. haven't studied the flower.
Ill try to take an image of the flowers if I can sync my visit with flowering.
Will try Soursop and mountain soursop (a. montania I think) but will probobly wait until I also have a african annonace plant to graft onto.
A. spinesences I know of and can get but the tree and fruit is not similar at all so maybe it won't work.
Maybe Annona senegalensis? Don't have access to seeds yet.

Probobly have to find other genetic material of a. manii to get fruit becuase if my friends tree's in the highlands haven't borne fruit I doubt they will fruit here in the lowlands.
