ALVA Australian star apple seeds available
« on: April 07, 2024, 11:29:06 AM »
Just have this variety flowering for first time and to me surprise set lot of fruits ,received the seeds from Mike T who talked high on it and the result was as promised ,Is a winner for me and stands out VS the Star Apple I've tried before , they are very sweet with the delicious Star apple flavor an  diluted condensadet milk sweetness with notes of honey and slightly sweet  Soursop ,there was very few or no ltex so no sticky lips on this one ,flesh is not firm ,very juicy and soft like eating a natilla or soft flan ,low seeds 3/5 of them per fruit ,and skin is ver soft flesh can be scratch just until skin is very thin ,so happy to get this variety that make me change my perspective of the all OK but bland star apples I've tried before ,this variety needs to be more spread widely ,from the star apple approach this could be considered a flavor bomb .One thing I noticed this haven't reach the close to a Kilo weight mentioned by Mike but that could either because I didn't water the tree or because is first time fruiting and the large amount of fruit set
Seeds 2.5 each
Shipping is 9 for USA and 11 elsewhere
