Cherimoya - White

Annona cherimoya

Cherimoya white

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.The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

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.

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,...

Another favorite - Very quick, easy to grow tree.    Fruits taste superior to custard apples and with much less seed.
