Cultivation and Care:

The plant has a robust and deep collated system. The trunk is erect and is surmounted by a dense and expanded crown formed by numerous brown-greyish branches covered with a thick down. In the places of origin the Annona is evergreen while in the temperate areas it behaves as deciduous, losing its leaves at the end of spring.The leaves, alternate, elliptical and 10-20 cm long, are light green and hairless on the upper page while in the lower are tomentose (covered by a dense down) and opaque green. The flowers, very small and pleasantly scented, are formed by fleshy greenish-white petals and bloom on solitary branches or gathered in groups of 2-3. Pollination is entomophilic but often, as the male and female organs do not mature at the same time, manual pollination is used using brushes with very small bristles.
The fruits, on average 10 centimeters long, are ovoid, spherical or conical; the outer skin is dull green and covered with a thin layer of bloom. Internally, the fruit is composed of a compact white and sweet pulp whose flavor is reminiscent of that of pineapple or banana. The fruit or chirimuya, in Italy is called Cirimoia or the English name cherimoya or anona is used. The numerous seeds, dispersed in the pulp, are flattened and blackish similar to those of a watermelon or watermelon. The plant blooms in spring and often it also produces flowers between July and August
