Plant in well drained location, this small tree needs quick dry-off to thrive, likes a south slope in full sun, tolerant of salt laden air at seaside. | Tom Moore - Adjuntas, PRUSA 26-Jun-2006

Sweetsop (Purple Sugar Apple)

Very susceptible to frost, as I found to my sorrow in western Sydney where temperatures can get extreme. RIP little tree. My next one stays in a big pot at least till it grows up. Annona cherimoya by contrast seems indestructible. | Diane - Sydney, NSW 25-Nov-2010

Drops its leaves late, in winter. Flowers at a young age. Flowering Dec 08

I have my first crop of fruit, it has lots on it this year 2010.  I picked about 7 fruit and beat the birds.  I did leave a few too long on the tree and they split.  Tasty fruits - lots of seeds.
