Time to eat my Priestly Atemoya (Man Cau)

So I picked some more of the fruits on my priestly atemoya two days ago. The fruits are finally ripe and ready to eat. But I think it's more exciting to look at the fruits than to eat it. This tree I got from Top Tropicals is supposed to be Priestly, but now I'm not sure if it's a 48-26 or priestly because the fruit is pinkish. The smell of the fruit is good but not as strong as the sugar apple. The taste is not so sweet...but around the seed around is sweeter. It's also chewy. Guess next year I will fertilize the tree more. I will also change the pot to a larger pot. The two largest weigh around 7.7-8.5 oz.

Wow..I'm jealous. You have a green thumb. I wish I can grow tropical fruits like you. Obviously, I have a lot to learn. In the beginning, I thought you live in California somewhere and you have the ability to grown tropical fruit. Turned out you live in PA. Oh my gosh, this is just amazing. :-)

keep the seeds and see if it will sprout. In malaysia, we will throw the seeds on the ground and most of them will sprout.

I have to learn from you how to plant tropical fruits in the cold PA here :) My grandma used to have two Atemoya tree and it gave us lots of fruits.
