Anyone growing a Cherimoya or Atemoya tree?

I would like to hear your experience with this tree. I want to grow one on the east side of my house close to the house. I know they're a bit cold hardy but the summer might be too much for the Cherimoya here. Will giving it afternoon shade save it from drying up in the summer heat?

I got a fruit from aj's fine foods last year and planted seeds in various locations around my yard. The seeds planted in the shade all sprouted and grew about 6 in before the hottest months of summer came and killed them all. The lone survivor is in a pot in my living room and doing quite well next year I will plant it outside in the shade but I'm not getting my hopes up
