Annona Golden
Reg. $49.95; Sale: $29.95
Golden Honey Sugar Apple. This rare Annona is a species originally brought from Costa Rica.
It has a large, up to 1 lb fruit, turning dark yellow to orange on ripening. The pulp is golden to orange, resembling papaya in color and Jackfruit in texture. Flavor is like the custard apple but with papaya, apricot and melon overtones. This species tolerates flooding. It is also cold hardy at least to upper 20's for a few hours. This feature, along with a tasty fruit and flood tolerance, makes it desirable for Florida gardens and other similar subtropical areas. The plant would be very interesting for rare fruit collectors as it offers a large, exotic fruit of unusual color and taste, and appears to be much more hardy and water tolerant than similar looking but sensitive A. muricata, A. montana and Rollinia.
