Botanical Name: Annona cherimoya

Its possible that no known fruit compares to the delicious taste of the cherimoya. The white flesh is luscious, soft and sweet and is described by many as having the flavour of Mango, pawpaw, bananas and coconut. They're absolutely delicious when devoured icy-cold from the freezer and eaten like ice-cream. A large evergreen tree with flowers and a scent just like the fruit tastes. Very closely related and similar in appearance to the custard apple. Cropping as far south as Melbourne.


Cherimoya - Seedling

Similar to a custard apple, but more juicy with a hint of pineapple and more cold tolerant. Cherimoya fruits are regarded as one of the most delicious fruits known to mankind.

Because of it's flavour many people have nicknamed it the "Queen of Fruits" because it's flavour is so much better than other custard apples.

This is my first year that my tree is producing fruit after I learnt how to pollinate the flowers it was realy quite easy now I hand pollinate most of my fruit trees I have fruit about the size of an orange and getting bigger | Ron Briggs - Grafton, N. S.W 28-Feb-2007


While they like the cooler conditions. they wont tolerate the inland frosts well. mine were killed by -3C or lower, ive tried each year. Maybe older ones are a little tougher if you can protect them. Ill be trying with Annona montana instead this time | Reville - Tabulam , NSW 08-Jul-2008
