Is anyone getting Cherimoya or custard apple fruit?

    6 responses

Im keen to get some Cherimoya trees but I have read that in Australia, pollination is not good so they require hand pollination. Is this correct? Has anyone got much fruit from their Cherimoya without hand pollination?

No fruit. Heavy rain at flowering is the cause Maybe

I bought Paxton Prolific custard apple tree and it produced fruit fairly quickly. However, before the fruit ripened, the tree got collar rot and died. I am starting again but this time I am using Yates Anti Rot in Spring which seems to work.

Having said that, I appreciate that you are in Singleton and so am not sure if it's not too cold for a custard apple tree.

I have done a bit of research and it appears the cooler wet winters and hot, dry summers here will preclude me from growing custard apples unfortunately.

Hi RDavies, they grow fine here in Perth. The 40 degree days knock them around a bit but they’ll still produce plenty of fruit if hand pollinated.
My tree is in a 130L pot and has been there for 10 years. I top dress the pot with manure twice a year.
