This is a very rare red outer skin atemoya variety. The inside flesh is white.
Atemoya is the result of a sugar apple and cherimoya cross pollination. This can happen naturally when a cherimoya and sugar apple tree grow near each other. It is a rare member of the anonna family.
(Annona cherimola × squamosa)
The flesh is smooth. The flavor is mildly sweet with a tiny hint of berry. Atemoya is typically more like a cherimoya in flavor and texture than a sugar apple. It will arrive unripe. Please wait until soft all over before enjoying.
It has a mild sweetness. The texture is bouncy and chewy like the Geffner variety.
This red atemoya variety ripens for a longer period than most atemoya varieties. We recommend that you allow 2-4 additional days of ripening after the fruit initially gets soft. So once this atemoya gets soft, allow 2-4 more days to ripen (depending on your environmental conditions). Proper ripeness will give you the best flavor.
Atemoya itself is rare. Red atemoya is extremely rare. We pay the farmer per pound+ shipping handling for them to get it to us in a timely manner, then for us to get it to you in a timely manner.
