Just sow them like any other seed. They take ages to germinate, like three months minimum up to 12 months. You will most likely not get the custard apple tree that produced the fruit you are getting the seed from, because they are a hybrid between what's commonly known as a Sugar apple and a Cherimoya. But, you never know, you just might end up with the next world beater or a drop kick or anything in between. It's good fun all the same.

I don't know about this, they usually take only a week or two to germinate at 20-25c soil temp. I've never encountered a Annona seed that will last more than a couple months in a pot and still be viable (they usually rot before that for me)

Perhaps I should clarify further. Because of the number of seeds I've sown in the past, including Cherimoya, I plant them directly in the ground and let nature take it's course. One reason they take so long could be the fact that I'm sowing them fresh from the fruit, which ripens over winter where the ground temps may not be favourable for quick germination.

I.ve germinate a lot of cherimoyas or rather they just popped up where I ate . The seedling fruit is generally equal to grafted fruit but the number of fruit per tree is a lot fewer.

Yes, its easy to grow Custard apple i grew 400 plants last year and sold them all for 20 dollars, I'm going to grow 1000 yes time around there are 2 ways to grow them from seeds 1st way is paper towel method, with this method you put 2-3 seeds in the paper towel wet the towel then fold them and wrap them up with sandwich plastic bags then keep warm inside on window or elsewhere warm. 2nd is in plastic cups or trainer pots plant a seed in the pot water it and cover the whole pot with clear plastic wrap and keep away from frost.. and in 2-3 weeks you will see sprouts come out. hope this helps..

With Annonas direct plant most species like soursop,sugar apple,bullocks heart,atemoya(not true to type) or put them in a clip lock bag with breathing holes and moistened media.For ilama,morolo,asimina,,A.spraguei,Duguetias and a few others GA treatment helps a lot.Some Annonas take 5 months to come up.
The picture is the Taiwanese giant sugar apple that handles the sub tropics.They are not here yet and need treatment and phyto certificates to come in since the green curtain fell lower recently.Stay tuned.

This A. Squamosa is reportedly from E Java. It's turning out larger than expected.
I'm wondering where Daley's sourced their "big eyes" variety from?

They are looking good JohnMc1 - keep us tuned in when you ripen - open and Taste - Im setting up an area but not under plastic for some Annonas soon - your cherimoy seedlings are handling our cold quite well at present - planted garlic today.

Yes, have grown plants from the seeds. They do take lot of time in germinating.
