Tropical Fruit - Atemoya
(Annona cherimola x squamosa)

The Atemoya was 'created' in 1907 by U.S. Department of Agriculture employee P. J. Wester as a cross between the Cherimoya (Annona cherimola) and the Sweetsop or Sugar Apple (Annona squasmosa).

Looking somewhat like a strange artichoke, the atemoya has a creamy custard-like pulp and a mango-like flavor with a hint of vanilla.

Manmade hybrid of cherimoya and sugar apple. Harvested in Florida August-October and November-January. Typical size is 32 ounces. Allow to ripen to room temperature until fruit is soft. Flesh is creamy white with a pleasant, sweet flavor. Best eaten fresh or may be refrigerated up to 1-3 days. Very good source of calcium, phosphorus, iron and a good source of vitamin C. Use fresh and in desserts.
