Description

A medium to large sized tree from 25-80ft high. Leaves are very pretty, with a glossy green surface, and a shimmering gold velvety underside.

Hardiness

Star apples are tropical, and will not survive more than a couple of degrees of frost.

Growing Environment

Propagation

Either by seeds, which take 5-6 years to bear, or by grafting and budding, with trees coming to bear in 2-4 years.

Uses
