This is a taste sensation with the fruit tasting of creamy lemon sherbet and lemon meringue pie. The large yellow fruit has a bumpy surface and soft spines. Rollinia's perform best in warm subtropical to tropical conditions, intolerant of cool conditions, temperatures as low as 3 degrees can kill young trees. High humidity is necessary for pollination and regular water is essential during flowering and fruit set to avoid premature ripening of the fruits. Rollinia trees are shallow rooted so they will need protection from strong winds. The fruits are picked when they begin to turn yellow, they will continue to ripen off the tree and have a shelf life of only a few days. Seedling trees can bear in a little as three to four years.

I have several seedlings growing strongly here in a high and rather cool part of Sydney - and there is a tree in the Syddney Botanical Gardens that fruits well every year.
