CUSTARD APPLE - PAXTON PROLIFIC

Custard Apple Paxton ProlificBy MarkMelb Daleys My Edible Page All Rights Reserved, Used By Permission (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Annona atemoya
Description

A modern selection of the popular Pinks Mammoth variety. It has a low seed count and excellent natural fruit set. This means that, unlike some other varieties, there is no need to laboriously hand pollinate each bloom to achieve a good harvest. Unpruned custard apples grow into very large trees. With dedicated, twice yearly pruning it is possible to restrict tree height and spread to 3-4m.

'Heavenly' best describe the taste of custard apple for me.

Happy with the condition of the plant upon arrival. Big (about 1 meter high) lush and healthy. I hope it can cope well with the hot burning summer and cold frosty winter of inland NSW. I'm hoping the same for my African Pride variety.  I will update at the end of summer next year.

Dec 30,2018 - Lost most of its leaves here in Melbourne during winter 2018. Pruned back during spring and applied fertilizer (sudden impact). Growing vigorously atm 😎

Jan 23, 2019 ,- started to flower now together with my African pride with just under one year from purchase. Just wait and see if any of the blooms will develop into fruits 😎
