FYI

There are TWO types: PINKS MAMMOTH (rough skin_ and another - Smooth skin

Most are around 1 kg or more.

Price : IN SEASON around SGD$12/kg at Chinatown Smith Street Comples
ISETAN sells it for almost double the price.

Current prices are around $16 / kg

Very little seeds, less fragrant than normal size custard apples.

I have one Taiwan Giant custard apple fruting, will see how in 3 months.

I also have my own "Aussie Giant" plants growing for 2 years now and
I only have 1 giant fruit still growing, its around 700 grams now.


Wait until price drop to $12 per kG.. If you want to be on alert.
leave your mobile number with the Chinatown smith street basement sellers.

ISETAN also have , but they are over 1 KG, nearly $20 each since they are high end supermarket.

The Giant Custard apple plants are available from Thong Hup Gardens at Jurong side.. you have to purchase at least 3 plants because you don't know which one will set fruit. I purchased two, but only 1 set fruit due to human intervention.

Other Giant Custard apple plants are also available from Koon Lee , just 3 km up the road. I am testing those, they have already flowered and I want to see them set fruit.

Many will flower but never set fruit *EVEN* planted into the ground.
Once I determine the good ones, I will probably Saw down the useless
ones.
