Atis - Anona Squamosa

One of my fave fruit, atis with a scientific name of anona squamosa. Cultivated in the Philippines. Small tree. 3 to 5 meters high. Leaves are hairy when young, oblong, 8 to 15 cm long, with a petiole 1 to 1.5 cm long. Flowers occur singly in the axils of the leaves, about 2.5 cm long, pendulous, three-angled, light green to yellow. Fruit is large, slightly heart-shaped, 6 to 9 cm long, the outside with knobby polygonal tubercles. When ripe, the fruit is light yellowish-green, with a white, sweet soft, delicious and juicy flesh.  Breach of Trust
