How to sow and care for Sugar Apple Seeds
Sugar Apples are easy to grow from seeds. Our seeds are healthy, so soak them for three days before planting. Make sure you moisten the planting mix well after planting. It is best to keep the container in a shaded area with a temperature that does not fall below 20 degrees celsius. Sugar Apples do well in evenly moist soil, so keep the soil evenly moist during germination. Don't overwater the plants.
Sugar apples can be grown outside in a suitable climate. Make sure the trees receive plenty of sunlight. Fertilize young trees every 4-6 weeks with a complete fertilizer during the growing season. Spray a thick layer a few inches deep. Mulch should be placed around trees up to 14 cm from their trunks to retain moisture and regulate soil temperature. Regularly water the soil, but make sure it doesn't become soggy.
