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.
For a balanced development of the the Cherimoya , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. During the spring the the Cherimoya can't stand the cold weather; should the climate be particularly harsh, with minimum night-time temperatures some degrees below zero, let's cover our plant with non-woven fabric.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.
These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 1-2 buckets of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 2-3 weeks , when the soil is dry. 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.
