Sugar Apple trees shed their leaves once a year (Deciduous) during the winter months. Leaves make a comeback in spring. If you order a sugar apple in the winter months, the tree will have no leaves. If you order in the spring, the tree will have foliage but of very poor and not pretty. If you wait until the end of the spring, the Sugar Apple tree will grow very quickly and leaves will emerge green and vigorously.

Sugar Apple trees are dormant and without leaves all winter. It is in the summer that leaves return. They disappear again at the beginning of winter.
