Anemopsis californica is a spreading groundcover that has large, waxy, gray-green leaves that lay flat and form mats that from a distance look like a permanent pasture. In this species the inflorescence is conical and has five to ten large white bracts beneath it, so that along with the tiny white florets, the whole structure is quite striking when it blooms in spring.

Family: Annonaceae
Pond Apple, Alligator Apple, Monkey Apple
Origin: West Indies
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterYellow/orange flowersEdibleFlood tolerant

Pond apple (Annona glabra) native to swamplands of the southeastern United States. Although not as tasty as its tropical relatives (usually eaten raw, but sometimes made into jellies and wine), pond apple provides an important food source for wildlife of this region. Pond apple's can stand immense flooding and spend weeks at a time with their roots under water. The pond apple is very useful as a rootstock for other Annona species.

Annona sp., Golden Sugar Apple, Pineapple Sugar Apple, Honey Sugar Apple

Click to see full-size image Annona sp.
Family: Annonaceae
Golden Sugar Apple, Pineapple Sugar Apple, Honey Sugar Apple
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

This rare Annona is a species originally brought to us from Costa Rica. We believe it to be a natural hybrid between A. muricata and A. glabra.

It is a very ornamental, evergreen, small to medium size tree with waxy, large 4-6" leaves, similar to A. muricata, A. montana or Rollinia. Fast growing, forms nice bushy specimen. Flowers are very similar to A. muricata.

It has a large, up to 1 lb fruit, green when unripe, sometimes with gray to brown spots, turning dark yellow to orange on ripening. The pulp is golden to orange when ripe, with strong Pineapple scent, and resembling Jackfruit in texture. Flavor is like the custard apple but with pineapple, papaya, apricot and melon overtones. Fruits tend to be quite seedy. Skin of unripe fruit is tough, looks similar to Annona glabra, however it is smooth, without any bumps or segments.

This species prefers well-irrigated sites, and seems to tolerate flooding. It is also cold hardy at least to upper 20's for a few hours. 3 year old trees survived several nights with frost with hardly any leaf damage. This feature, along with a tasty fruit and flood tolerance, makes this species desirable for Florida gardens and other similar subtropical areas. The plant would be very interesting for rare fruit collectors as it offers a large, exotic fruit of unusual color and taste, and appears to be much more hardy and water tolerant than similar looking but sensitive A. muricata, A. montana and Rollinia.

Propagation is by seed, which are grayish to light brown. If stored for several months, seeds may take up to six months to sprout. Trees produce after three to four years from seed.

Asimina reticulata, Netted Pawpaw

Click to see full-size image Asimina reticulata
Family: Annonaceae
Netted Pawpaw
Origin: Florida to Georgia
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

A medium size shrub up to 5-6 ft tall with succulent-looking narrow leaves and delicately fragrant creme flowers attracting bees, butterflies and other incects. Fragrance is honey-like. Flowers are 2-3" wide and have unusual shape. Pawpaw flowers are strange, nodding structures; the netted pawpaw has one of the prettier blooms. The flower is trimerous. The stamens are tightly packed forming a solid hemisphere of anthers surrounding the receptacle. Three or more stigmas emerge from the center of the anthers. The flowers are ready for pollination before the anthers shed their pollen. This ensures that the flowers are cross-pollinated; pollen must come from an older flower, preferably on a different plant. This species can be found in dry areas that get swampy for a few months during rainy summer season. Blooms in spring. Unlike other members of the Annonaceae, the pawpaws are found outside of the tropics.
