   Sugar Apple, Sweetsop, [Annona Squamosa] originally from Jamaica, can be found in most of the Caribbean Islands.  Unlike most fruit trees, the Sugar Apple will start to flower and bear fruit two years from seed. 
   Eating them is kind of like eating fondue, a lot of work for a little bit of great flavor. The way it works, is that most of the fruit is wrapped around each seed and there are a lot of seeds. The inside of the Sugar Apple's skin can be scraped with your feet or a spoon, its taste is like eating brown sugar. 
   Sugar Apples are not a good produce for the Super Market, as it doesn't reach its full flavor until it begins to fall apart. A specialty shop may be able to market it if the grower is near by, because it ripens is only a few days.

The beginning of a Pineapple

A Pineapple almost ready to be picked
      Pineapples are so easy to grow, I don't know why more people don't grow their own. Keep in mind that it takes eighteen months to grow one Pineapple and after you have picked it; the plant will produce another Pineapple. The Pineapple is ready to be picked when you lean over and it smells sweet.

 For more information on Pineapples, look up my Posting's:
                "History of Pineapples"
