The Sweetsop aka Sugar Apple is related to the Cherimoya and the Soursop. Sweetsop will grow best in the subtropics and tropics. The tree is a fast-growing, but deciduous (looses it leaves) during cooler months. The trees can reach 15 feet on average, but is fairly easily restrained. Young trees can be trained against a surface, or pruned off to form a regular free-standing trunk. Growth is in one long flush, beginning in spring. Young plants need staking to protect from breakage. They are drought tolerant when established and do not withstand poor drainage. Fruit is delicious, sweet and tastes amazing when ripe and refrigerated overnight. Sugar apples taste like a sweet vanilla custard with a hint of pineapple. Its smooth and slightly grainy texture makes this fruit a delight to snack on.
ITEM DESCRIPTION: Plant is in a 3.5" x 8" deep container. The average planted height from soil level is 9-12 inches. Plants are available now and ship out Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
