    Custard Apple - Seedling

    Seed grown selection of African Pride. As with all seedlings the advantage is stronger vigour in marginal climates and chance to come up with a unique selection. Crops in about 4-6 years. The 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

    Self Pollinating and fruit is set low to the ground

    Custard Apple - Geffner

    Geffner is an Israeli cultivar with a moderate to heavy cropping capacity. The flavour is exceptionally good and although it performs well it's not superior to the African Pride. However it is known to be self pollinating and sets fruit every year. A very reliable tree that does not need much maintenance for home gardens.
