Tree Growers Nursery
Phone 02 65690117 or 0490206035
Cherimoyas trees 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. A video showing how to hand pollinate cherimoyas is shown here.
Grafted plants are in 4L bags, 80cm to 1m in height and supported by a 75cm cane.
Rootstock: Cherimoya selection.
“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.
“Fino de Jete“: a variety imported from Spain which has large (450g) fruit of excellent flavour and appearance. It is not as vigorous as Bays and doesn’t grow as tall.
$25 each (incl. GST)(2019 price)
