Big tree with potentially yummy fruit (though I haven't tried one yet). A little more expensive than other variety but I hope the grafting makes it more productive.

This is my fav tree in the garden. The leaves are beautiful glossy green and a creamy underside. The trunk and branches are also creamy and smooth. It is quite spectacular. The fruit apparently is divine, and it is a cousin of Abui tree, which has yellow fruit. Star Apples are a beautiful huge tree, growing to between 8 - 30 metres when mature so they need plenty of space. A mature one looks very similar to a Bodhi Tree and it can yeid 68kg of fruit each year.

I bought the Haitian from Daleys because it is said to fruit within 2 yrs.
