Description

CUSTARD APPLE Annona squamosa Seeds are poisonous. 10 to 20 ft high. Will produce fruit in 2-3 years. Hand pollination with a natural fiber brush is effective in increasing yield. Germination may take 30 days or more but can be hastened by soaking for 3 days or by scarifying. Medicinal Uses: In India the crushed leaves are sniffed to overcome hysteria and fainting spells; they are also applied on ulcers and wounds and a leaf decoction is taken in cases of dysentery. Leaves are also used in baths to alleviate rheumatic pain. The crushed ripe fruit, mixed with salt, is applied on tumors. The bark and roots are both highly astringent. The ripe fruit is luscious. In Malaya, the flesh is pressed through a sieve to eliminate the seeds and is then added to ice cream or blended with milk to make a cool beverage. It is never cooked. Zones 9-11. 10 seeds
