Fruit Trees > Subtropical Fruit Trees > Custard Apple Tree > Custard Apple - Pinks Mammoth
Has the delicious and melting taste of the sugar apple which makes it one of the most popular of the custard apples. As the name suggests the virtually seedless fruit is one of the largest. Top marks for quality, however a lower yield than the African Pride. Pinks Mammoth has a very large fruit size and high fruit quality. It is named after Mr Pink, the man who introduced it to Australia. When mature the tree produces significant yields.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

I've had this tree for a couple of years, but it has been moved a couple of times, so has stayed quite small, as it has not been able to become established.  May even have to be moved again as I think it will get too big for this position.  It has lo...
