Fruit Trees > Tropical Fruit Trees > Sugar Apple - Purple
The sugar apple is an interesting tropical fruit that has succulent segmented flesh that is creamy-white. This selection has an attractive red skin and will bear from seed within 2 years. Delicious eaten raw (preferably chilled), in fruit salads, ice creams and drinks. 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

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.

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.
