Fruit Trees > Tropical Fruit Trees > Rollinia > Rollinia - Picone
Selection from Northern NSW, consistent cropper in frost free subtropical locations, large juicy fruit. Rollinia is a relative of the cherimoya this plant has its origins in tropical America. The fruit about 100mm in diameter has a creamy juicy and delicious flesh, according to some tasting like lemon meringue pie. Sourced from Picone Exotic OrchardsThe foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back
Other Names: Rollinia mucosa, Biriba, Brazilian custard apple
