Custard Apples are a delicious fruit - sweet, juicy and fragrant. They are unusual looking with their knobbly skin and irregular shape but this hides creamy white flesh with a silken texture.
Fruit Tree Cottage stocks the grafted Paxton Prolific Custard Apple which has few seeds and is self-pollinating meaning there is no need for hand pollination.
As the name suggests it is a heavy cropper and during its first few years of fruiting it would benefit from having some fruit removed from each branch rather than allowing all to mature.
The fruit is very versatile and can be eaten fresh from the tree, juiced, added to a fruit salad, in a crumble or a cheesecake, add it to yoghurt or cakes and muffins plus added to savoury dishes that would benefit from a hint of sweet.
