Customer Comments on Sugar Apple - Purple
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
