    Hi Jee

    It’s called custard apple, green when it’s ripe and turns to black when it’s too ripe. so u need to feel it to know if it’s ripe to be eaten. that’s when it’s soft. Sweet and lots of pips [big black hard pips]

    Got a bit more info from wiki, custard-apple and sugar-apple is actually different. Both looks alike and belongs to the same species of Annona.

    Can’t really determine that the Annona in my photo is a custard-apple or a sugar-apple (or possibly another type of Annona), the images resource online seems to mix these 2 up, and it looks way too similar for me.

    Doesnot matter, Jee…at long it’s taste sweet and after a big bite, u can split the pips out like a machine gun….great fun…have u try?.

    I believe yr pic. is a sugar-apple as it’s abit purperlish where else custard is more on the green side.

    both taste best esp when they are ripe enough….use to put them in the rice grain pot to quicken the riping process.

    I actually don’t prefer fruits with seeds lol… I always try to get seedless fruit, and banana is my favorite.
