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.

Sugar apple tree was damaged in cross country shipping but received free replacement instantly without any hassles! Replacement tree looks great and well branched! Very happy with the quality of trees at FGT.com
This was my favorite fruit growing up in Jamaica and I was super excited when I came across the tree on Fast Growing Trees, the plant was delivered in perfect condition and was doing really well and then the winds came :( and broke the larges limb off and now with only the stem of the tree I am working on nursing back to health. I am really bummed about it because Inow have to wait longer for the fruits.
Sugar Apple arrived in Florida, on time and well shipped. Had lots of leaves and was planted with Root Rocket and soil form the company. Seems to be doing well, but there is some black on the leaves. It doesn't seems to be effecting the plant. It seems to be taking, as there is no sign of stress. Still waiting for new growth and to taste a Sugar Apple for the first time.
Ships fast, and in good condition
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
