custard apple flowering not fruiting

Submitted: 12:21PM, 11 Mar 2010
Answer: Dear Janelle,

It could be that your custard apple tree is not setting fruit due to long periods of hot weather.

What you could do to encourage fruit setting is to hand pollinate by using aa small paint brush to take the pollen from the male flower to the female flower.
