… ripe fruit as FRUIT
some thoughts:
… Both in tree and in fruit, the custard apple, Annona reticulata L., is generally rated as the mediocre or “ugly duckling” species among the prominent members of this genus
Quoted from: Purdue University<>
In India, many “discover” the existence of A. reticulata ! (read: some of us get to know about it quite late in our lives)

– Adding my picture of a ripe fruit from our home garden at Nasik.

bull’s heart – Annona reticulata : 10 posts by 7 authors. Attachments (4)
Annona reticulata (family : Annonaceae).
Common name bullock’s heart bull’s heart
Kannada Rama phala
Considered much sweeter than seetha phal.
Wonder why they are seldom seen in Vegetable/Fruit  Market. Are they of indian origin ?

‘Annona reticulata’ is called ‘Ramphal’ ‘रामफळ’ in Marathi.

‘Annonaceae Family’ is known as Sitaphal Kul’ ‘सीताफळ कुल’ in Marathi.


This is Annona squamosa not A. reticulata


I dont think this is Annona squamosa !!


A pic of leaves could be of some help.
i think this is not a fully grown fruit. thats why it could not be identified. it is not A. squamosa nor A. muricata. a possibility of A. reticulata is there (which is possible as the fruit is not fully grown?).


Id looks probable though fruits looks a little different than what we see here, once a common species, planted and wild, but fruits are not that sweet what have been claimed in this thread, certainly village urchins do like to eat. Each year we need to prevent our our students from climbing one such tree in front of our school.


For me the ID by … is correct only.


Yes, Sir, Annona reticulata to me.


Annona reticulata


 


/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Ramphal_2614.JPG

Plant for ID from IK Sethi:  I am putting this in a new thread to avoid mix up. I think it should be Annona squamosa


I thought it as A. cherimola.


I think you are right.


may be Annona reticulata.


I too think this is Ramphal .


I think more likely to be Annona reticulata L. as per images and details herein.
