Product Description

Produces Tons Of Delicious, Sweet And Creamy Fruit

The Sugar Apple tree, also known as the 'annona squamosal', is a unique tropical tree that's the clear winner amongst its competition because it produces a distinctive fruit with an individual look and tropical flavor that blows people away.

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. While most Sugar Apples are eaten fresh, they can also be used in desserts and for making juices.

Don't fight yourself from eating one Sugar Apple after another, because they are packed with vitamins and nutrients like Vitamin A, C, potassium and more. Sugar Apples are the perfect refreshing and healthy snack.

Sugar Apples, often referred to as 'sweetsops', have a unique shape, similar to a heart and light green skin that's divided up into sections. Its conical nature causes the fruit to look like a green pinecone at first, but since the fruit is split among different sections it's very easy to split apart and eat fresh, right off the tree.

Once you pull your Sugar Apple apart you'll find soft and creamy flesh on the inside that's divided into sections. Simply pick out the white flesh sections one by one and eat them for a rush of rich tropical flavors.

You don't have to live without Sugar Apple trees, because they will grow anywhere. They'll give your landscape a lush tropical feel if planted in the ground, and they also thrive in containers. They can be placed around porches, patios, and inside any room to liven it up with their long and slender exotic leaves.

Sugar Apple Trees produce an irresistible fruit that people can't wait to try. They're selling out fast, so we recommend ordering yours today before they are all gone.

Great tropical fruit tree

I purchased the 1-2 ft sugar apple tree at the end of March-2019 since the larger tree was not available at that time. When I received it, I was very disappointed at first because it came in not quite a foot tall (11 3/4 inches to be exact) and the leaves were kinda dried out. I called Fast-Growing-Trees Customer Service and the agent told me that's normal when the tree underwent stress during packing and transporting. She told me to follow the potting instruction and the tree would came back. I immediately potted the tree and the tree gradually came back alive about a month later. Then it started growing and shooting vigorously. Now, in October after potting it for 6 months, it is now between 4ft - 5ft tall and branches out nicely. I live in zone 7b; so, I will have to bring her inside when colder weather comes. I love this tree and I am very happy with the purchase.

So Far So Good

Just wanted to share. Sugar apple arrived looking like a twig in April of this year. Now it’s October and it grew pretty fast and looking normal. Hopefully it will survive this winter in Bay Area zone 9b.

What a darling

When I bought this little one it was only about 3 ft. tall in October of 2018 & it gave me one darling small but perfect sugar apple this August of 2019. The fruit was delicious though only the size of a small peach, but great ! It now stands at 6 ft. tall, remarkable growth in just one year. I have it in a large pot outside in a sunny location (50 % of the time). I fertilize her once every 3 months with fish & kelp emulsion. It's VERY healthy & seems to be extremely happy. I should mention that I live down in the Florida Keys and even though we've been having very hot weather & allot of rain, she's doing remarkably well.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: First, select an area with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily). If you're outside of the growing zone for the Sugar Apple, you can plant in a pot and place indoors - preferably in front of a sunny window.

To plant, dig your hole large enough to accommodate the tree's root ball, place your tree, backfill the soil, and water to settle the roots.

Finally, apply a 2- to 4-inch layer of mulch around the tree to retain moisture and regulate soil temperature.

If you're planting for indoor growth, select a container that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container (and ensure it has drainage holes), use organic soil, place your tree in the pot, and find a spot in front of a sunny window for growth.

2. Watering: Generally, you'll water about once a week. But if you're not sure when to water, simply check your soil about 2 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water your tree.

For container-planted trees, water until you see drainage from your pot's drainage holes.

3. Fertilizing: Feed your young tree every 4 to 6 weeks during the growing season with a complete fertilizer.
