purchased a seedling from a nursery in darwin 05/1993 but died in 04/1995 purchased another one in 01/1995 still alive and has set fruit but fruit not matured purchased another one from daleys 11/1999 var.piconii which is grafted onto cherimoya rootstock giving it more cold tolerance still yet to fruit growing in a pot
