Sugar Apple



This is one of my mom's fruit plants inside our backyard. This fruit has a really sweet taste. It is one of my favorite fruits that i really love to eat because of its sweetness. It's fruit flesh is sweet, white to light yellow, and resembles and tastes like custard. It is slightly grainy, a bit slippery, very sweet and very soft. This fruit also is rich in calories and a good source of iron.
This fruit also known as a custard apple but here in the philippines we called it "atis" in our language (tagalog).
