Abstract

A micropropagation procedure for the adult cherimoya tree (Annona cherimola Mill.) is described. Axillary shoot proliferation was obtained after culturing nodal sections from Annona cherimola cv. ‘Fino de Jete’, on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 2.28 μM zeatin. Roots were induced after preincubation of shoots for 3 d in light on MS basal medium supplemented with 1 g l−1 activated charcoal, followed by culturing for 10 d (7 d dark and 3 d light) on MS medium with 492 μM indole-3-butyric acid (IBA), 15 g l−1 sucrose, and 200 mg l−1 citric acid. Sixty-eight percent of induced shoots rooted after transferring to the same medium without auxin and with the macroelements at half strength and the sucrose at 20 g l−1. About 65% of rooted shoots survived after acclimatization. The procedures described herein may prove useful for clonal micropropagation of selected genotypes of cherimoya.
