Banner year for sugar apples
« on: August 10, 2018, 01:27:19 PM »
It's been a L-O-N-G wait but this summer I am FINALLY getting to enjoy my sugar apples. Yesterday I picked nearly 20 lbs of fruit and more is still coming from both trees. It has been 4 to 6 years for them to get to this point but it was well worth the wait.  Now if only my soursop and custard apple would catch up I'd be in annona heaven.

Jeez I never expected this long of a wait.

Congrats!
I hope to one day be in a similar boat, in "annonaceae" heaven with Asimina triloba fruits in a few years.

What cultivars do you have?

Is there much of a problem with critters stealing them?  I have one lone sugar apple on one of my trees (thought I got all the flowers off, I apparently missed one).  If there is, I was going to try and take some measures to stop the critters.

I have 3 sugar apples and one tobago sugar apple.

I think you are mixing up custard apple with sugar apple.  I believe the Tobago Pink is a custard apple (A. reticulata).

You are correct, I did get them mixed up.
