Re: atemoya, was beating back the jungle

atemoya is a naturally occurring cross between annona squamosa [the sugar apple or sweetsop] and a. cherimola [the cherimoya]. i have a picture of the fruit if you're interested. it is grown in tropic-like areas, zone 10a/b. the cherimoya, which is much prized in world markets, is from chile and does not flourish in humid areas. most major plantings of cherimoyas in the u.s. are in the san diego area. most major plantings of atemoyas in the u.s. are in south florida. most major plantings of sweetsops in the u.s. are probably in puerto rico--although that's a guess. i have two sweetsops and one atemoya. both fruits are delicious, but to tell the truth, i find the sweetsop preferable because it is more predictable and more prolific. but whatever, they are similar and truly wonderful fruits--better even than white peaches [when i was young, i thought nothing was better than white peaches].
