I had tasted many varieties of Sugar apple, and they're only have one flavor: sweet and very sweet. For the first time (last week), I tasted a Atemoya (Geffner), all I can say is that I haven't tasted any SA that even come close to it, more fragrance with some acidity. I hope Vietnamese people spread the words and start to plant more Atemoya.

They are. There's a bunch of them Vietnamese people in my area who are growing atemoya instead of sugar apple.

I have several types of atemoya variety , but I still want to have Vietnamese sugar apples because of my childhood memory too. I have not seen and taste the real fruits for 20 years. Hopefully in the next 3-5 years I can the chance to taste it. So excited to Wait for the seeds arrive.

I have never germinated sugar apple seeds before like this VSA.

so far, i heard we're supposed to soak the seeds in water for at least 12 hours and put the seeds in a seeds starter soil. Keep the soil moist but not soak. cover the cup to keep the soil humid.

Did i miss anything else?

I usually slightly open the sides of seeds before soak them over night in water . It helps the seeds sprout easily in the damp towel , then I transfer them to the soil when I see long and white roots appear.

Don't forget to put the wet towel in ziplock bag , and check often to see if they sprout or get mold.

place the bag in warm direct sunlight or warm no sunlight. I imagine mold is the issue. just change the bag and towel if it happens?

I sometime have to rewash the seeds and replace the paper towel when they are moldy
