Annona x Paw Paw?

Posted by jun_ 8b-9a (My Page) on

has anyone experimented with crossing a cherimoya (or other tropical annona) with a paw paw? Paw paws have superior cold hardiness.

I am asking because I just lost two of my atemoyas in the past winter's freeze. It got down to 22 - 25 F for 4 days. It's very frustrating to lose a tree that you love.

My mom has a paw paw that is blooming, and the blooms look just like those of the annona's I have.

I wouldn't count on it. I know that sugar apples will not cross with paw paws. Cherimoya and paw paw blooms have no resemblance whatsoever.
