Sugar apple / Sweetsop
Tropical part of South America
The sugar apple or sweetsop is a tree from tropical America and reaches a maximum height of 6 meters. The fruit looks very scaly and almost falls apart when the fruit is completely ripe. The fruit flesh is white, very soft and tastes sweet. The texture is a bit like yoghurt. Worldwide, the fruit is grown in the tropics. In temperate climates, the plant can be kept as a container- or houseplant at a minimum temperature of 10 degrees Celsius. In a large pot, combined with some heat, you should be able to make the plant bloom, so you can reap the sweetsops later.
First soak seeds 24 hours in lukewarm water. Sow them in sowing mix and keep the soil constantly moist. Let them germinate at 25-30 degC.
