Customer Tips & Reviews Rollinia - Brazilian Custard Apple
BUNGALOW, QLD, Australia
I purchased this Rollinia bout 4 years ago out at Holliways Beach Markets off a lad down from Juletten selling tropical fruit trees. It sat around in it's pot for a couple of years till I got round to planting it out. Decided to try to top it at about ...

There was a healthy tree in the Sydney Botanic Gardens that bore lots of fruit - very warm and protected spot, though

Another Plant experiment - this is strictly a Tropical Tree, but hey i have one now for the Temperate Adelaide Climate. I do have a good sized pergola with perspec's which provides filtered light and i have shade clothe'd the pergola as such creating a...
MAREEBA, QLD, Australia
Seems to be growing well so far. It has passed the brutal Mareeba sun test and didn't mind the transfer into the ground.It is now struggling with the unrelenting heat. Not sure if it will survive. Probably needs the moistureof more tropical areas.

I just loved the description of a fruit that tasted like lemon delicious pudding, took a punt, bought one, it has only ever given me one fruit, i tasted it and was sold! There are masses of flowers on it now but no fruit set even though i'm keeping the...
The plant is deciduous but it is so warm here it managed to keep all its leaves over winter. New growth - currently planted in a massive pot in full afternoon sun.
I love the tase of Rollinia and it's hard to find at Rusty's Market. Often sold out.I would like a dwarf version but have not seen any lately.
Unanderra, NSW, Australia
Quick growing, goes completly deciduous in winter but recovers whenspring arrives. I have two with one of growing in a large pot.
Keperra, QLD, Australia
Fruit is really nice - lemony custard apple taste, but it is a bit sloppier than the other custrad apples, which can put some folks off.Tree is quick growing and flowers profusely year-round, but will only set fruit when given buckets of water and some...

Growing nicely in a pot. I'm not expecting to get any fruit from this tree but I like the idea of miracles.
Cooroibah, QLD, Australia
