Cherimoya (Annona cherimola) is native to certain parts of South America, but now has been spread to other tropical regions such as parts of the Caribbean. The tree grows to between 5-9 metres in height, producing fragrant fruity-scented flowers. The fruit itself is a large (10-20 cm), cone or heart-shaped with the appearance of green “scales” on its exterior. It has a white pulpy interior which is extremely creamy and sweet, giving it the names custard apple, or ice cream fruit. It also contains hard, dark-brown/black seeds which if broken, are poisonous.
