Thank you Mike. it brings back my childhood memory of a huge tree bears massive large round fruit with yellow smooth fragrant flesh in summer, taste like a mix of pineapple and mango, it was so so yummy. It is the best fruit I have ever had.

Hey Mike had given up hope of your little flavour packed guavas germinating after many months, pleased to spot two or three emerging this morning. Glad I didn't empty that pot out...

Phil I have discovered the same thing... that they take months and people just give up.I acquired some argentine yellow fleshed tropicals and they popped up within days.A couple of brown sicana seeds germinated yesterday but the tiny seeded black type is showing no action.I have heard they are the 2 best types of cassababana in all rio state.

Phil that is the idea.If only 5 survive I'll pass 3 on to specialists and hopefully I can be a cassabanana johnny appleseed.I had 2 oyster nut vines come up and that is what I did with those because I would be too risky for them.I just hope they were male and female.
Miranda, mountain soursop is not usually considered as good as the regular ones.I wonder if you tried an elite type or your memories have sweetened over time.

Still have some P. antioquiensis for you Mr Nash.. must drop them off once the ground is damp enough, although they seem to like a bit of shade

VF the hog plums are just so yesterday and there are only 4 casabanas up and still no black ones.It is such a pity that further restrictions on the import of Annona seeds mean you won't be able to bring them in from overseas any more.
On that note GA3 600ppm worked a treat with my dead ilama seeds that were hauled outa the fridge and dug up.I have 5 sprouting now in less than a week.The red genova,white genova and pink fleshed.... mexican saint lady named types got mixed so I don't know what they'll be.

Great news Mike with the Ilama - they should fill the void of the other misbehaving annona. Sounds like you have a promising collection happening. Going back a month or two someone on ebay was selling some seedlings(from Cairns too) - I was very tempted but was unsure what the quality woud be, as not much written on their blurb. I'm running out of space for larger trees, so am sticking to known good un's.

VF these ones are not local but made it over the wall before the green curtain came down.Maybe the TS knew that other Annonas had aroused my curiosity.I have a couple of new soursops and rollinia that were travel companions of the ilamas and I have at least one of each sprouting.

Mike, I think you've now definitely pricked the ears of any Annona lovers. New varieties of soursop and rollinia too?! Im starting to turn a slight shade of green with envy! (Haha). I'll be eagerly watching this space for any more updates to come...

Re Mike,
couldn't help noticing your propagating success on two Oyster nut vines. How are they?
Can't find a source for them anywhere in Aus, I see Denise from Auckland was growing them a while back also. Anyone know where they might be available?

John the only sources are African and I have my vines away as they would be too big for me.
The ilamas have also been spread around but I have 3 in the ground and just planted a weak one as well.The seeds got mixed but I am hoping for a red genova,green genova and Rosie Perez which were the 3 types sent.
I gave away most of the soursops but planted a Brazilian lisa and Tanzanian special but should have put in a morada but I gave the whole pot of seedlings away.I also gave the rollinias to farmers.That stuff is all very 2012/2013 and the bar has been raised.The world of tropical fruit is abuzz at the moment.

The first plant I grew lasted for several years until cut out for development at the airport. It was only male. The replacement plants copped a freak frost and died just before the species were mysteriously deleted from the list of importable seeds. Alas many plants just slipped off the list around 1998 when some rapid changes were made in the system. I had sold seedlings to people up north and wonder if any are still in existence. If only it was easier than it is to have it reapproved.

Thanks for that, denise, I'll check to see if we can import some seed into Aus.
A guy by the name of Hans Muller was growing it in Sydney ~20 years ago. He had to physically go to Africa to source the seed for himself.
I've been through this once already with GAC, It's deja vu all over again.

My first source was Nelspruit in South Africa, second in Zimbabwe and then had an offer from Nigeria. They seem to be somewhat widespread if thinly. The nigerians seem to have some large areas of them commercially. I dont know any current sources.

While we're putting in orders I'll stick my hand up for a jujube cutting John--assuming that there is one that can cop the weather in brisbane.

Brisbane should be OK. They do grow by cutting, but I'm doing something wrong. I'm tearing all the unwanted growth from around the rootstock and trying to get that to strike, but it's just not happening.
My eventual aim is to graft known cv's onto the rootstocks if and when they strike. I'll have to wait till I get root shoots happening. Seeds from known cv's are inert so if you want rootstocks from seed, you have to let a rootstock fruit and use those seeds.
