These pictures and video are taken as of mid-August. I’ve been really diligent about hand pollinating and watering the custard apple tree, have learned a whole lot about the flowering schedule and how to best collect the pollen. It is generally said that if you “over-pollinate” the pollen, the fruit may end up with a lot of seeds, I will have to wait and see how it turns out for my fruits, since this is my first year doing this I don’t know whether I over-pollinated. But so far, the results are very encouraging, the 30+ fruits are growing big every week. I am planning to feed the tree with some fertilizer soon to help it nurture all these fruits.
