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 up the space with their long and slender exotic leaves.
