Family: Annonaceae
Scientific name: Annona squamosa
Common name: Sugar apple / Sweetsop
Origin: Tropical part of South America

The sugar apple or sweetsop is a tree from tropical America and reaches a maximum height of 6 meters. The fruit looks very scaly and almost falls apart when the fruit is completely ripe. The fruit flesh is white, very soft and tastes sweet. The texture is a bit like yoghurt. Worldwide, the fruit is grown in the tropics. In temperate climates, the plant can be kept as a container- or houseplant at a minimum temperature of 10 degrees Celsius. In a large pot, combined with some heat, you should be able to make the plant bloom, so you can reap the sweetsops later.
