Annona cherimola x A. squamosa (Atemoya Page)

Click to see full-size image

Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterDeciduousEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

One of the first named selections of atemoya was the Page, so-named by Roy Page of Coral Gables who took budwood from superior atemoya trees on the property of Morrison Page in the Redlands. Fruit production of Page is good but fruit tends to split on the tree at maturity, so you may want to keep your eye on ripening fruit.
Atemoya is much hardier than common Sugar Apple, and at the same time can tolerate tropical heat unlike Cherimola which requires cooler summers. It makes Atemoya an excellent choice for subtropical and tropical garden. Can tolerate light freeze. The tree growing to about twenty-five feet at maturity with about the same spread. Atemoyas have fewer seeds than Sugar Apple, which makes them a lot easier to eat as a fresh fruit.

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful
