The Cherimoya develops like a shrub. The Cherimoya develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. This plant in the summer assumes a yellowgreen colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 4 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.
Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day. The Cherimoya usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones.Young specimens, which have been planted for little time, usually are ensured by a stake, which keeps the stem erect; during the winter letís protect the young plants covering the area near the roots with dry leaves or straw.
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 1-2 buckets of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 2-3 weeks . To avoid that the watering and fertilizing for our fruit plants get absorbed by other plants, we suggest to clean the soil from the infesting plants, periodically, even by simply using a hoe.
These fruit plants need an averagely humid soil, not too drained.
