A small (2-4"), knobby fruit with soft, creamy white flesh often having a minty or custardy flavor. The sugar apple is extremely popular throughout the tropics, especially in climates where the cherimoya can not be grown. Description: Small, deciduous tree to 15-25ft, spreading to the same size. Trees loose leaves in the winter for about 4-6 weeks. Leaves are 6-8" long. Flowers appear with new leaf growth in early spring. Fruits ripen 3-4 months later throughout summer and fall. The common sugar apple has a green skin but dark red varieties are becoming more commonplace.
