Hi, Has anyone tried grafting Annona species onto Asimina rootstock to improve cold hardiness in temperate climates? Are they grafting compatible with each other? Thanks

Hi 410

I think there's a chance that grafting annona into asimina rootstock will work because they belong to the same annonaceae family just like grafting different stone fruit cv into one stone fruit rootstock. I know that people have successfully grafted together apricots,cherries, plums, nectarines, peaches etc into one rootstock though most of the grafts are extension of the original lower grafts.
Note that grafting plants together from the same family but from dissimilar genus has a low success rate. You must have a steely resolve and determination to succeed plus a lot of planting materials to sacrifice for your ultimate goal.
All I can say is good luck on your unusual grafting journey. Please inform us about your successes and failures that might inspire us to follow your lead.
Happy gardening 😎

Hi Fruitylicious1,

Thanks. your reply is very encouraging and inspiring. I'm trying to grow a soursop variety in my climate (Melbourne) and so far killed a Kyogle soursop and a mountain soursop which are said to be the best chance for colder climate. Now I'm upto my last resort which is grafting onto an asimina. I also have one more Mountain soursop which I recieved from Daley's recently which is in mint condition for now :). I will keep you updated with the outcome after this winter.

Hi 410

Try to protect your soursop this winter by sheltering it in your pergola or a makeshift greenhouse during cold nights and mornings this coming winter and early spring and bringing it out when the sun is up and warm. You have to grow it first before you can harvest scion for grafting. Or you can try approach graft between the two genus (asimina and annona) so you don't have to wait for them to grow large.
Happy gardening 😀
