A sugar-apple and the cross-section of another. The sugar-apple is the fruit of the Annona squamosa plant. It is usually round, slightly pine cone-like, 6–10 cm (2.4–3.9 in) in diameter and weighing 100–230 g (3.5–8.1 oz), with a scaly or lumpy skin. The flesh is sweet, white to light yellow, and resembles and tastes like custard. The edible portion coats the seeds generously and has a texture a bit like the center of a very ripe guava.Photo: Muhammad Mahdi Karim
