Why I continue to live in this furnace is beyond me.

I have a geffner atemoya that supposedly doesn't require hand pollination. This is its first year blooming so I can't confirm that notion.
Did you try the trick of placing an old, rotting fruit or two close by or under the tree?  It is supposed to attract some pollinators. ... just to help things along..

No, I have it it in a container right now next to some of my container fig trees that are fruiting. I don't want too many pest.

A local nursery was having a clearance sale last month and the size/price was too good to pass up the atemoya.

I'm not in a permanent housing situation at the moment but I do intend to put it in ground eventually and scatter rotting fruit/veggies to attract the bugs. I have been trying to hand pollinate my geffner atemoya and asian sugar apple with a paintbrush but I haven't been very diligent with hand pollinating at nights.

I haven't had that much lychee before but I was very satisfied. It was shipped out on a Friday and received monday. I would order again.

I bought some Hak Ip and Sweetheart lychee from Lara Farms on facebook a couple weeks ago. If you have a facebook account it might be worth a shot.

I just purchased and received some plinia seeds from https://www.farwellfruitfarm.com/. Seeds arrived quickly and were well packaged. I'll be buying more seeds from them in the future.

I am planning on growing atemoyas and sugar apples as well. Currently I have close to 40 Dr White Cherimoya seedlings to use as rootstock. My understanding is that it would be a good rootstock for my environment, might be worth a shot for you too.

I am also interested in growing this eventually. If I recall correctly, someone in another thread mentioned this website https://reallygoodplants.com/. Looks like they are out of stock till fall, might want to check back later.

Thanks for the recommendation K-Rimes. I just went to my local hydroponics store to pick up a jug. I figure its a worthwhile investment for my jabo varities besides the grimal and sabara which are doing okay with my city water.

Neat vid, can I ask how you acidify your water? I'm in a similar condition in AZ

I was going to do a short video on that, but realize I need a new PH meter. You'll need one for figuring out your baseline and how much acidifier to add. I've been using Advanced Nutrients phosphoric acid which comes in quarts, gallons or six gallon jugs. Just 1ml is enough to treat 2.5 gallons from 8.1 to 5.5 to 6.0  - I use a pipette and a regular ol watering can and take that out to the jabo(s).

Ok that was the idea I was going to try out. I just got a bottle of ph corrector from "general hydroponics" and a ph meter last month. It didn't list any directions on the bottle and I didnt have time conduct any tests. Now I have to find the will to do it this weekend instead of lazily just opening up the tap for water. Thanks for the insight.

Ok that makes sense, I just assumed it was an airlayer. Thank you.

I also have an achacha tree with the same looking nursery tag as the one you got from fast growing trees except mine was purchased from a local nursery in Arizona last summer. Unfortunately I just had to prune it back due to sun damage but I don’t see any indications that it was grafted. I may be mistaken, but I believe my achacha tree is an air layer that was propagated by pine island nursery.

I am relatively new grafter with figs and have been using parafilm for grafting. It's been kind of a pain to tear off the desired size of parafilm tape that I might want to use. I could use scissors to cut each strip to length or just get perforated tape that has it already done.

Seeds arrived very quickly. Thank you.

I guess next year I will just order cherimoya earlier. Lesson learned.

Just received my order from this vendor. I ordered about three pounds and received about 15 golf ball sized fruits. Is this normal for this late in the season? It was my first time ordering cherimoya online and from this vendor.

After trying cherimoya for the first time this week I'm gonna be on the lookout for Dr. White seeds. Thanks for the tip.

Cool, got a lot of research to do to prepare....

I stumbled across one of these at my local nurseries so I decided to pick it up.

Out of curiosity, when Zill's releases a new cultivar in any fruit do they usually get a lot of attention or does this one stand out?

I recently purchased a few different varieties from https://growdragonfruit.com/. They are out of stock now but you can sign up for email notifications. I saw it available a few days ago and it was something like $60 bucks for a cutting.
