Cherimoyas

Harvest Season: January through June

Cherimoyas generally require hand pollination for maximum crop of high quality fruit. The marked effect of strong or even gently prevailing cool winds on growth of the cherimoya is the reduction of growth and fruit quality.

When Cherimoya blossoms open they are female, and stay female for seven to 12 hours. After that, the blossom opens wider and becomes male. It remain male for roughly seven hours. After the male phase, the petals drop.

To hand pollinate, you need to collect pollen with a small artist paint brush during a male phase and store it until new female blooms appear. With the small brush, you apply some pollen inside the opening female bloom.
