Seedling Cherimoya from our own tree, Annona cherimola
Chilled pineapple banana custard sounds delicious, right? That is the flavor and the texture profile that many people are reminded of when they first taste the fruit of the tropical evergreen tree commonly known and the Cherimoya (Annona cherimola). Native to South America, but quickly naturalized throughout the world to other tropic and sub-tropic regions, it has become quite legendary.
