Annona cherimola - Custard Apple

Notify me when this plant is available:

  • A small, subtropical fruit tree with architectural, elegant foliage. Annona cherimola produces apple sized, soft, sweet tasting fruits if kept warm in a conservatory. The creamy texture of the flesh is what gives the fruit its name, the 'Custard Apple'. It is most commonly eaten out of-hand or scooped with a spoon from the cut open fruit. It is known to be used in making cakes, ice cream, custard etc. It can be kept in a large pot during the Summer months. For optimum growth and for fruits to be produced in the UK, it prefers to be planted in dry or moist soil and to be constantly kept above 10C.

    We have 5-6cm tall, healthy seedlings in a 7cm pot on offer.

  • The intended main use of this plant is to grow food for human consumption. We always recommend further research to learn the different ways in which the food source can be prepared and consumed.
