MMM's "Everything is Possible"

… … … life trail of a wanderer


AnonaAnona or Annona squamosa a small well-branched tree or shrub that bears edible fruits called sugar-apples.

There are several types of Annonas that grow around the world in tropical and  subtropical regions.  There are two types:

  • the atemoya,which is a cross between the trees Annona squamosa and Annona cheimoya;
  • the sugar apple or sweetsop, Annona squamosa.

Both of these trees produce delicious, delicately flavoured fruits.

The sugar apple is an exquisite fruit that is very closely related to the cherimoya. The fruit are typically baseball to softball size, and they taste like sugary sweet custard. The pulp comes apart in segments each containing a small black seed that separates easily from the fruit. The trees begin to fruit at just one to two years of age, and they can easily be maintained at eight to ten feet.
