Scientific name: Annona squamosa
Common name: Custard Apple, Sugar Apple
Annona squamosa is a small, well-branched tree or shrub from the custard apple family Annonaceae that bears edible fruits called sugar-apples. Aggregate and soft fruits form from the numerous and loosely united pistils of a flower which become enlarged and mature into fruits which are distinct from fruits of other species of genus (and more like a giant raspberry instead).
The round or heart-shaped greenish yellow, ripened aggregate fruit is pendulous on a thickened stalk; 5cm to 10cm in diameter with many round protuberances and covered with a powdery bloom. Fruits are formed of loosely cohering or almost free carpels (the ripened pistels).
The pulp is white tinged yellow, edible and sweetly aromatic. Each carpel containing an oblong, shiny and smooth, dark brown to black, 1.3cm to 1.6cm long seed.
