Product Description

Annona cherimola, commonly known as the cherimoya or custard apple, is a tropical and subtropical fruit tree that belongs to the Annonaceae family. This evergreen tree is native to the Andean region of South America and is now cultivated in many tropical and Mediterranean climates around the world.

The cherimoya tree typically reaches heights of 20 to 30 feet (6 to 9 meters) and features glossy, dark green leaves. What makes this tree particularly appealing to both horticulturists and fruit enthusiasts is its distinctive fruit. The cherimoya fruit is heart-shaped and can be quite large, with a green, bumpy skin. When ripe, the skin becomes slightly soft, and the fruit gives off a sweet fragrance.

Inside, the cherimoya contains creamy, white, and fragrant flesh that is often likened to a combination of flavors, including banana, pineapple, and vanilla. It is sometimes referred to as the "custard apple" due to its smooth, custard-like texture. The fruit is enjoyed fresh and is commonly used in desserts, smoothies, and ice creams.

Cherimoya is not only prized for its delicious taste but also for its nutritional value. It is a good source of vitamins, particularly vitamin C, as well as dietary fiber and essential minerals.

Cultivating cherimoya requires a warm, frost-free climate and well-drained soil. The tree is relatively low-maintenance and can thrive in regions with mild winters. Because of its delectable fruit, the cherimoya has gained popularity in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide, and it is celebrated for its unique flavor and culinary versatility.
