Custard Apple Tree (annona cherimola)


Coolest looking fruit ever! Not only is it funky to witness growing on the tree but it has a amazingly sweet and juicy interior flesh with a wonderful smell. The heart-shaped fruit can grow as large as 4 inches wide and 8 inches long and scale in at a whopping 6 pounds. What makes it really otherworldly is the rounded protuberances of the skin that give the impression that its melting. The fragrant flowers that precede the fruit are greenish to white in color with downy petals that show a pinkish inner. The Cherimola tree is an erect grower ranging from 16 to 30 feet tall with leaves that sport velvety undersides. Trees are small and well suited to patio container growing.
