CHERIMOYA - WHITE

Cherimoya whiteBotanical Name: Annona cherimoya
Description

Cherimoya is a very heavy cropper of large fruit with juicy flesh that can be a little gritty just below the skin. The unique flavours suggests a hint of mango-papaya. A pleasure to eat due to its low seed count. A commercial favourite in California. Because of it's flavour many people have nicknamed it the "Queen of Fruits" because it's flavour is so much better than other custard apples.

Cherimoya - White (Grafted) 8/10

Andrew's Edible Fruits
Update: 3501 days 10hrs

Comments: -

I have found that the Cherimoya requires moist soil but not over water logged conditions.Also i try and maintain a steady pH between 6.0-7.0 and generally use a manutec product for fertilising then alternate to blood and bone and also fish emulsion to prevent toxic build-up of metals in the soil.

Maintenance........just steady pruining to clean up dead or damaged branches and the flowers are VERY succeptable to wind damage not to mention leaves and branches

.In general a very hardy and well balanced plant though height has to be kept in check that way it doesnt grow out of control and also have to take into account branch angles for when fruits form-the fruit can weight alot and snap branches with ease!!

Fruiting Months April and May

This fruit formed in autumn this year. I purchased the plant 2 years ago. Last winter, the pot was kept in a glasshouse, but this year it has been outside in a sheltered location. We have had about 20 mild frosts. The fruit has hung on over winter, and I am hoping it will ripen once the weather warms up. This is the first tropival fruit that I have produced in Melbourne.

In spring/summer she grows so quickly she can easy get too wispy. Make sure you tip prune!!! I have to make sure to cut her back at least 30% when she loses her leaves otherwise the next spring she isn't strong enough to support all the new growth.

Grows well on crappy acidic soil in west brisbane. Has set quite a few fruit soon after going in ground without hand pollination, so would seem fairly self-fertile here.

Linnie's Edible Fruits
Update: 3235 days 8hrs

This plant has been in the ground for years. When they say "Hand pollinate', they mean it. The only time it has carried fruit, I had methodically hand pollinated the few female flowers with pollen collected from the few males earlier. On that occasion, about 10 fruits developed until almost full and ripe, and HUGE; but then, overnight, the possums/bats etc munched them to nothing, so i've yet to taste one...

Planted: 2005

Height 3 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: mulch, compost

When I Fertilise: Yearly

Pest Control:

If I ever hand-pollinate agin, I will have to address the possum/bat issue!

Organic Status:Partially Organic

Question:

Do I need to do something else such as prune this plant to get more fruit, or do I really have to hand-pollinate each season?

This tree is going to be big!! Oops may have planted it too close to the house. I am pruning it like mad, lol. Nice smelling flowers but how do I pollinate it?

Planted: 2009

Qty: 1

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: Self Pollination

Question:

Help! This tree flowers well, but how do I pollinate it? Many attempts have failed! I used a small paintbrush and poked it up into the flower to try to get some pollen and then followed by putting it into the flower at female stage. How much pollen do I need? How do I know if any has stuck?

There are conflicting reports about this cherimoya variety but majority of it are positive. What I think is, oftentimes the taste of the fruit and its overall performance will greatly depend upon its microclimate. The nearer we can simulate  its original habitat the greater the chance that it will reach its full potential. Add to that the general care given to the tree. Its the dominant commercial variety in the U.S. so a lot of people must have like it to become commercially viable for growers to produce. My white cheri will complement my recently acquired cheri sofia.
