Red Gefner Atemoya Live Plant
Red Gefner atemoya is normally heart-shaped or rounded, with pale red, easily bruised, bumpy skin. Near the stem the skin is bumpy as it is in the sugar apple but become smoother like the Cherimoya on the bottom.
The flesh is not segmented like that of the Sugar Apple, bearing more similarity to that of the Cherimoya. It is very juicy and smooth, tasting sweet and a little tart, reminiscent of a pina colada. The taste also resembles vanilla from its sugar apple parent. Self-pollinating.
