Cherimoyas are more cold tolerant than Custard Apples ( a related species) and perform well south to the Sydney region. The fruit is arguably of superior flavour to the custard apple and matures in late autumn to winter. Trees are semi-deciduous and grow to a height of 5-9m with spreading branches.
Hand pollination is generally required in order to enable fruit set.
Grafted plants in 5L bags, 60 – 80cm in height.
Rootstock: Cherimoya selection.
“Fino de Jete“: A cherimoya variety that produces large, excellent quality fruit that matures early in the season (April in northern NSW). It can produce large
fruit even when the trees are quite heavily laden. This variety originates from Spain.
“Bays”: Large, sweet, impressa fruit with great flavour (with a hint of lemon flavor). Bears well after hand pollination. Appears to perform well in cooler climates -grows well on the mid north coast
of NSW. It is quite vigorous and will grow to a height of 6m.
