Ready to pick?

annonaloverAugust 26, 2012

Hello, I am in Fort Lauderdale Fl, and late last summer I planted my first Atemoya tree. It was a "Lisa" 48-26 variety that I purchased from Spykes' Nursery. Well it gave me flowers this spring and I hand-pollinated it. It was only the tree's first 3/4 of a year in the ground and it has produced this lovely fruit. Does anyone know if it looks ready to eat yet? I am very excited about it, but don't want to pick it too early. Any adive would be appreciated.

Wait until it starts getting softer and starts releasing a sweet like smell. Then it will be ready to harvest.
