Small crop on the tree. The bats are making a feast of the higher ones.

This tree was one of the first I put in many years back and I can't remember now how long it took to fruit. Worth the wait though :)

My custard apple has been in the ground for 3 years now and no fruit.  Am getting very impatient.  It was grafted, not from seed so should be producing.

Ah there you go. I would love your productive aquaponics set ups in return.

You have a fantastic, productive garden Envy.

This lot of fruit are up too high for me to gather. The bats can have them.

Bats usually wait until the fruit is close to ripe. I used them to tell me when my Lady Finger Bananas were ready to pick.

Valerie, Custard Apples can be lethal weapons one day and ready to eat the next. They take some watching - putting fruit in paper bags is a sure way to lose it I have found.

That looks great. We got some from a friend that were not ripe yet. They went from rock hard to rotten :/
