Hi Tolga

The secret of buying a cherimoya tree from Daley's successfully is you have to religiously monitor the availabilty once a week every Wednesday sometimes on a Tuesday when they update their stock. Due to its high demand and low supply the cherimoya stock will only last for 1 or 2 days. You have to be there at the right time and the right day as I found out last year where I was able to purchase 3 cherimoyas from Daley's (White, Sofia and a seedling). Competition is fierce once you saw the availability you have to buy it then and there or else another guy will not hesitate to snatch it in front of you.

Again you have to be vigilant as a saint, persistent like a hound, and well aware of the times when Daley's update their stock which is usually once a week on Wenesday or Tuesday morning about 10:00 a.m. onwards. It is also worth checking their pre-purchase online catalogue once a week. Sometimes they will sell it on their pre-purchase listing before it even goes to the main sale catalogue.

Happy cherimoya hunting :-)

I agree with Fruity. For certain fruit trees, especially tropical ones, demand is much higher than supply.

Their pre-purchase option is the best way to ensure you get one when they become available, but you've noticed that the option is only available for a small number of items.

Further to Fruity's advice above, winter is a slow time for plant retailing, especially for tropicals. To save your sanity, don't stress about it's availability too much at the moment. Come spring time, you should see a lot of things become available very quickly. In my experience with Daleys, September/October through to Christmas, and then January/February is normally when you can go nuts buying stuff.

Keep your eyes peeled though, the odd thing pops up here and there. The last time I saw cherimoyas available was last Feb/March, maybe even April? The seedlings stay on the shelf for a little while, but the grafts walk out pretty quickly once people get wind of their availability.

I got my plant 5 days after I transfer the money into their account.It' a wholesaler trying to sell a few plants on gumtree. Their website is treegrowers.com.au and their service is very good.I planted mine in the ground and is struggling a bit due to the weather. On the net it says Bays is a super sweet large size fruit so I'm excited to grow it.Go ahead and buy one and let's compete to see who will get fruit first.
