custards on my tree!!!!!!!!

When I was small I had planted a custard apple plant in my backyard. Those were my favorite fruits. Today when we (I and my sister) were playing hide and seek, I hid behind the custard tree. I was stock still taking a deep breath. My sisters’ ears are very sharp, she always find me hearing my huffing. I looked around for my sis and oh what did I see, there were about five small custard apples on my tree. It is the first time it is getting fruits. I was overjoyed and gave a yell MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM, MY CUSTARD TREE GOT FRUITS. Hearing this, my sister came running. What do you think she must have said? I found you! I found you!

I've never heard of custard apples or custard apple trees. What a neat name!!!! Do the apples taste like custard????? ha

I'm learning so much by blogging. Wow!!! Thanks for sharing.

Have a wonderful day and week. I'll post one more time in the morning--but then I'll be gone for about 9 days.

Hugs,
Betsy

Well at least you and your sister are over the tummy ache you probably had after eating so many mangoes. I've never heard of a custard apple.

I shall be researching custard apples. I love apples and I love custard so it sounds like something that should be on our ten acres.

Custard apples! I'm not familiar with these, but I'm intrigued by them and wonder what they must taste like. I'll have to look for some in the fall at the farmer's market!

Hi Susan :)

Very interesting!

I am thrilled to note that the sapling you planted when you were young has grown up and started bearing fruits now. The small small fruits will ripen fast and you should be able to get sweet, delicious, juicy custard apples. You and your sister will have a wonderful time.

But don't eat all. Keep some for me:) or send it by speed post:) Make sure the squirrels and crows don't start eating it.

Have a wonderful day Susan :)
