Origin: Purple Sugar Apples are thought to have originated from Central America and the West Indies, though some historians believe that Sugar Apple was first found in India because of the depictions found in many ancient sculpture and paintings.
Flavor Profile: The texture is more creamy and the flavor has subtle hints of berry. There are also flavor similarities to vanilla, pineapple, and mango.
How To Eat: Extremely rare and limited availability. Purple sugar apple has a unique purple scaly skin outside. When ripe and soft, this fruit can be opened by hand by simply pulling in half. Avoid eating the skin and seeds.
First come first serve, any orders that can't be shipped this season will be reserved for next season.
The total weight of the box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- Small Box contains up to 3-5 pounds
- Large Box contains up to 8-12 pounds
We ALWAYS recommend ordering a LARGE BOX for the best value, when compared to a Small Box. Because shipping, handling, and delivery are so expensive per package, the Large Box will contain more fruit and ultimately a better value.
