Sales space Cherimoya Fruit not Growing/Ripening

Purchased a 3 gallon Sales space Seedling from a nursery just a few years in the past. Tree is about 8-10 ft now and I’ve 5-6 completely different forms of cherimoya and atemoya on it. I’ve had Fino de Jete and Pierce branches produce fruit as typical. However, the rootstock fruit don’t appear to develop all the way in which. They simply cease rising. I believe the biggest one final yr was concerning the measurement of a billiards ball.

All had been hand pollinated and are on completely different elements of the tree. I thinned the fruit closely this yr so I might guarantee that was not the problem. I solely saved 8 fruit on it this yr since I’ve one other fruiting tree. Nonetheless identical consequence.

Here’s a image of what the fruit seems like:

And here’s a image of a pierce that was pollinated about 3 weeks after that fruit:

Anybody else expertise this? Only a unhealthy fruit on this rootstock? I assume I’ll have to do heavy pruning this yr to high work this tree. Not too excited if that is the case.

Additionally, LM3 would not appear to maintain up with the cherimoya grafts on all my bushes. Not as vigorous, I suppose. Will in all probability axe them however attempt to graft on a small seedling. The tremendous AP has no downside maintaining.

On one other be aware, hoping this seedling tree is a winner. Quick progress, dealing with the warmth, and set fruit quick.
