Joy Re: Cherimoya seeds...

Shaggy, when you do get fresh sds, they will take only about a month, give or take, to sprout. No point you getting the ones from here, they are hotter growing than the SA ones. Best of luck.....

I did germ some from Thailand and they are of the tangy sticky rice variety whereby the flesh which is very sweet is chewy instead of melting in the mouth like the normal type. Size is only about the fist.

No Cherimoya..but we should have Sugar Apple Seeds some time this summer or fall and whereas the viability is very short the germination rate is very high (100% for us) when they are fresh.

Any particular reason you are looking for Cherimoya (versus other annonas)?

Sugar Apple

Anyway..drop me a note and I will mail you some seeds when they are available.

I remember bringing some back from Peru a few years back but never did anything with them. I'm going back in a few months.

Thanxs man, that's awesome...I'll send a pm with address. I picked cherimoya versus other annonas for a few reasons, 1. it's different and no one even in my town knows what they are, sugar apples are known around here as horse fodder, but willing to grow them. 2. just for the fun of it. 3. experimentation.

Someone in the Midwest is growing sugar Apples???

Wow...my Uncle Donnie sixth generation Conch (from Key West, FL) always used to say..."Boy the best piece of fruit you ever gonna eat is a Sugar Apple". I have always thought they were awesome, everyone has their own taste preferences.

I will concede it is definitely more challenging to get a Cheriimoya to fruit out of the Tropics.

In any case PM your address and if you are interested I will send you some seeds (late summer early fall).

You can probably obtain Cherimoya seeds from one of the South Florida Fruit Clubs.

Rare Fruit and Vegetable Council of Broward County

Rare Fruit and Vegetable Council of Broward County | Facebook

Or contact Chris Rollins at the Fruit and spice Park in the Redlands.

Miami-Dade County - Fruit and Spice Park

Friends of the Fruit & Spice Park - Home

link to California Orchard:

Take the Orchard Tour of Calimoya - Part of Condor Ridge Ranch

Maybe you can coax one of the CA members to obtain some seeds from the orchard;-)

I know I'm a little late, but I'd love some sugar apple seeds.

My mother has a custard apple tree which she believes is cherimoya, but Im sure it's custard apple. The reason I say that is because they told me so over at the below mentioned fruit and spice park. I've also inquired at local nurseries and the consensus is that cherimoya will grow, but not fruit well, if at all, here in south Florida. They do need heat, but do not like humidity.

Anyway, my mothers tree had several fruit this past summer. I would be happy to send you seeds next year if you could remind me. I find the taste to be similar to a sugar apple, but creamy whereas the sugar apple has crunch to it... both make outstanding milk shakes, but sugar apple tastes better out of hand IMO.

Never had the pleasure of tasting a cherimoya

I also highly doubt anyone is growing a fruiting sugar apple tree in Ohio. All fruits are known by many names in different parts of the world. Do the horse fodder trees produce fruit like the one in the picture? White interior with black seeds?

Then of course, it could be the U.S. Paw-paw!
