My Sugar Apple - Snapshot Saturday

It's Snapshot Saturday again!  Snapshot Saturday is sponsored by Alyce of At Home With Books! Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.


Today I'm sharing photos of the sugar apple growing in my yard. The sugar apple fruit has a lot of seeds but the flesh is sweet and creamy - like a natural ice cream.  In fact, it's best eaten cold!

The fruit on the tree.



A close-up.

And this is what it looks like, when opened.
The tree doesn't grow very tall but it's good bearer and I can expect quite a few more fruit, maybe as many as twenty, before the end of the year.  (Unless a hurricane passes through, of course, and then all bets are off!)

  3. I'd never heard of sugar apples before either. And I agree with Paulita, they sound delicious (anything comparable to ice cream does, really) and look messy. I hope you get a lot more of them, and no hurricanes.

  6. Wow! Such exotic fruit for me to see! I have never heard of the sugar apple - your description of the taste surely makes me wish for a fresh, cold sugar apple of my own!

  7. I've never heard of this before - how unusual! My youngest is sitting her with me and he thinks it would be great to try (and said he'd put it in the freezer). :)

    1. Custard-like, that's the word I should have used to describe the flavour and texture! He'd love it!

  8. I have never heard of this fruit - how interesting! Does it taste like apple at all?

    1. Nope. Not even close so I'm guessing the apple name probably comes from the shape or something. The flesh is silky - more like jelly, particularly when it's quite ripe.

  16. It looks similar to what we would call a custard apple. Not exactly the same I suspect, but quite similar. Intriguing.
