How to Grow Cherimoya from seed

Learn how to grow Cherimoya from seed.


  1. Very interesting! I'm in Seattle too. I got my cherimoya seedlings to start, but I'm wondering when they can go outside and when I'd have to take them back in. Right now they are in a sunny window with just four leaves apiece (so they are still baby cherimoyas).

  2. You can move them outside now keep them in the shade away and covered from rain for a few weeks. They dont like wet feet. Then you slowly move them to full sun. I bring mine inside in october.

  3. I wanted to update you! My cherimoya is now about 12 inches tall and thriving. Thank you so much for your advice.

  4. i have one in a container i didnt have room to bring in
    and it hit 20F in January (new Orleans record cold)
    it actually came back from the roots.
    i was amazed at hot many plants did.

    even a moringa came back... (i attribute that to the fact that its roots were intertwined with a autumn olive which is cold hardy)
    about 7 guava came back from roots, as did grumichama, jaboticaba, white sapote
    jackfruit died, as did the baobob and black sapote.

    cherry of the Rio grand didnt even loose a leaf.
    mulberry and figs were all fine too.
