Fruit Trees > Subtropical Fruit Trees > Custard Apple Tree
Custard apple trees grow on an attractive small to medium sized tree that is similar in habit to the cherimoya. The open, spreading canopy is made up of long drooping branches that can often touch the ground. This tree offers delicious fruit and succulent soft white flesh that is delicious eaten fresh or blended into icecream or as a rich creamy drink.

Custard Apple - African Pride

$69.00 ($49.00-$69.00 choose a size)

This heart shaped fruit has a medium thick skin, more seed than the Pinks Mammoth and produces high yields. Early and consistent bearing, presentable fruit and early maturing is what makes this the main commercial variety.

Custard Apple - Bernitsky

$34.00

An Israeli variety with excellent flavour.

Custard Apple - Geffner

$34.00

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.

Custard Apple - Hilary White

$34.00

Hilary White is a strain of Pinks Mammoth. The cropping performance is between that of Pinks Mammoth and the African Pride. The fruit has a smoother skin than standard Pinks Mammoth, but average fruit shape. The fruit is sweet and aromatic.

Custard Apple - Late Gold

$34.00

A stunning golden bronze fruit with soft skin and a high flesh ratio. Good sized fruit. Proving to be an excellent performer in the Northern Rivers.

Custard Apple - Paxton Prolific

$69.00

A modern selection of the popular Pinks Mammoth variety. It has a low seed count and excellent natural fruit set. This means that, unlike some other varieties, there is no need to laboriously hand pollinate each bloom to achieve a good harvest. Unpruned custard apples grow into very large trees. With dedicated, twice yearly pruning it is possible to restrict tree height and spread to 3-4m.

Custard Apple - Pinks Mammoth

$39.00

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.

Custard Apple - Seedling

$29.90 ($21.90-$29.90 choose a size)

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.

Custard Apple- Maroochydore Gold

$49.00

A popular custard apple variety in Australia. A cross between a Hillary White and Red sugar apple. Suited to warm subtropical climates. Sweet and flavourful grown in full sun, self pollinating.

Dwarf Custard Apple - Tropic Sun

$69.00 ($69.00-$79.00 choose a size)

A small free fruiting tree suitable for home gardens. Ripe fruit has sweet creamy textured pulp with fewer seeds. Pick as mature firm fruit and ripen at room temperature. Plant in sunny well drained position protected from hot dry winds. Keep free from frosty areas. High humidity during flowering promotes fruit set. Mulch tree and prune tree in Spring to open vase shape. Fertilize well after fruit set with organic fertilizer. Regular watering commencing at flowering to harvest is important. The Tropic Sun custard apple tree is best suited to warm tropical and sub-tropical regions along Australia's eastern seaboard (e.g. from the Atherton Tablelands in far north Queensland down to Alstonville in northern New South Wales)

Custard Apple Tree

I live in near Kiama in Southern NSW. I had what I regard as a reasonable crop of custard apples this year. We are not tropical here. I bought it at a general nursery, but am now waiting for my Daley varieties to get big enough.

Very hard to grow from seed. It germinates but the seed coat fails to come off and is usually disease prone.
