Custard Apple - African Pride (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda19's Edible Fruits
Update: 3221 days 4hrs

Comments: -

I have two atemoyas - an african pride and hilary white.

They have been recalcitrant plants to get established! I don't think the wind has helped though. I am waiting for the tap root to establish more strongly.

They also suffer burnt leaf magins. The A.pride has decided to flower this week...(it's July).

I had 4 fruit off the A.pride this season and they were lovely. It was too soon to let it fruit - but I was greedy! They pollinated on their own.

My pruning job not too good on these guys.

Floweredall winter long (2009) and set no fruit by spring when flowers finished.

Nov 2010: Flowering madly. I put an extra microsprayer on it and the extra water has really helped it along.

Custard Apple - African Pride (Grafted) 9/10

Paulaf1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3339 days 15hrs

Comments: -

This tree is very easy to look after.  I just prune it to the shape I want it, and fruit fly don't seem to bother it at all.  I get about 20 fruit off it each year which I find is more than enough as they all ripen at once.  This year I took a few green ones off every couple of days, but the ones left on the tree all ripened at the same time.  Next year will scoop them out and freeze the pulp for smoothies.

Pest Control:

The only problem I seem to have so far is scale, which I just wipe off, and if I leave the fruit on too long the lorikeets steal the odd one.

Custard Apple - African Pride (Seedling) 10/10

Alex1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3320 days 15hrs

Comments: -

My custard apple tree is my pride and joy in my inner brisbane backyard. Eventhough it competes with some other 20 trees for attention, it fruited within 2 years of planting with reasonably sized fruit. It stands between a black sapote and mulberry, and is a fantastic addition to my collection of edible backyard foods.

custard apple family including sugar apple and cherimoya are up there in my list of favorite fruits. The taste is divine i would say.

Just like my Paxton Prolific it arrived in optimum condition, robust, healthy and lush. I will keep a close look with  my 2 latest fruitopia acquisitions coz today is the start of a long, hot hellish summer here in inland NSW culminating in a sizzling 38C next Friday. Whew!!! im already sweating just by thinking about it. I will update  by mid autumn when the burning cauldron has cooled down a tad.

21 April 2019, vigorously grown all season with flowers but, no fruit set. Hopefully next time when it is a bit more mature.🤔
