The atemoya is a hybrid between the cherimoya and sugar apple. Fruits are conical to heart-shaped and bluish green in color. The skin of the fruits tends to be more bumpy at the stem like the sugar apple and smoothening out near the bottom of the fruit. The custard like flesh is creamy white, non-segmented and contains shiny dark brown to black inedible seeds. Trees are pendulous in shape with drooping branches covered with elliptical leathery leaves. The flavor is described as sweet and subacid with perhaps having a fruitier flavor than the cherimoya.
*Hand pollination is required to ensure fruit set
