    Candongo or anón.

    I do not think that it is the "ROLLINA MUCOSA" (= misspelled) variety as the seller named it, but rather Annona squamosa.

    I was thinking it was Guanabana. Anyway, if anyone could figure out a way to harvest Guanabana and ship to USA they would get a premium price for it.

    The Guanábana fruit belongs to the same family, which has about 60 different varieties.
    It can grow quite large (up to a foot) and heavy (5 lbs.) and is very delicate when ripe and is thus seldom marketed.
    We have several trees and use the fruit to make 'batidas'.
