How hard is it to grow them here? Do you have them in the ground or pots?

This year was my best year for fruit tree production.

My top 3 are:
Persimmons - 645 fruits - 207.52 lbs (1 Fuyu tree -  469 fruits - 122.79 lbs, 1 Hachiya tree - 211 fruits - 94.24 lbs)
Fig - 2021 fruits - 185.38 lbs
Guava - 273 fruits - 100.59 lbs

I just did.
Thank you for the suggestion!

I'm using a program that I built for myself. The program can be downloaded and used for free and I'm looking for feedback.

I posted the details into a different section of the forum that is not very active. Here is the link to that post,

Please let me know what you think.

Thank you!

Below is a screenshot of the Cherimoya harvest.

Thank you Carolyn for taking the time to check it out and give me the feedback. I appreciate it very much.

Data entry is the drawback for all the programs :). I had the same issue as you, about figuring out the variety for every plant. That's why my original program has a garden layout feature also.

Garden layout.

The version of the program that I'm currently using has more features, which I did not include in the free version, because more features have more potential for problems and bugs.

I wanted to offer something simple and easy to use and not have frustrated users.

I was thinking that the program will be useful for beginner gardeners or for someone that is trying to experiment in the garden and would like to compare the harvest results.

Hello everyone! I hope that I am posting this in the right topic.

Almost 2 years ago I created a program to keep track of my harvest, because I always felt that I have too much of some vegetables or fruits and not enough of the other varieties. I wanted to find a balance and I had to keep track of the harvest somehow.

My wife thinks that I am crazy for weighting everything that I harvest and enter it into the program. Are there any other "crazy" gardeners out there that would do something like that?

A few months ago, I was thinking that maybe other gardeners might find the program useful and I created a basic version of the program that Iím sharing with you. Itís completely free and I would like to find out if other people like it and if they are willing to use it, before I spend more time and money to create a more complex version.

Below are a few screenshots of the program and a link to a video that shows how the program is working.

Please let me know what you think about it. Iíd really appreciate your feedback.

Thank you!

Do you have any grafting techniques that work best with Cherimoya?

I have 3 Cherimoya trees and only one of them has fruits that I like. I would like to graft the other 2.

Can you please tell me when is the best time of the year to do it?

Thank you Brad!

That helps a lot. I will look more into fino de jetes variety.

I have this cherimoya tree that I don't know the variety. Can you plesse help me identify the variety?

This is the 3rd year when it has fruits. Every year the fruits get bigger.
Last year the biggest one was 2 lbs 11 oz, and today I found the one in the pictures on the ground, it weights 3 lbs 1 oz.
