The sugar apple is an interesting tropical fruit that has succulent segmented flesh that is creamy-white, it is similar to the custard apple to which it is closely related. Delicious eaten raw (preferably chilled), in fruit salads, ice creams and drinks. 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

$29.00 ($19.75-$29.00 choose a size)

I love custard apples, the tropical sugar apple does best up here. This seedling grew fast and had a good first crop, nice fist sized fruit and very sweet.
