The flavor can also be reminiscent of vanilla. When ripe, the fruits can be eaten fresh.

African Pride: is a cultivar native to South Africa. In 1961, it was introduced to Queensland, Australia. It is an early cultivar and regularly bears moderate quality fruit.

The optimal temperatures for the development of the anona are 18-25 ° C in summer and not less than 5 ° C in winter, while if they drop below zero, the plant suffers from serious damage; it is also sensitive to freezing. In terms of soil, a rich, deep and fresh, slightly humid substrate is preferable but since it is an adaptable plant, it also grows on clayey and calcareous soils, provided they are well drained. The location must be in full sun.
