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

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.

Plant arrived in in Feb 2020 in great condition with soil still damp. Will plant this into a pot after 1-2 weeks outside and provide updates.

May 2020 - slowly, but consistently, growing since potting. We will see how it copes with winter in Toowoomba - may have to bring it inside on cool nights.
