Family: Annonaceae
Scientific name: Annona conica
Common name: None
Origin: Ecuador

This very rare Annona species is on the red list, because its original habitat in Ecuador is slowly disappearing. The species occurs in the northwest of Ecuador, where it grows along rivers in drier forests. It’s a small tree or shrub/bush that can grow up to 5 meters in nature. The plant produces white-yellow flowers which are followed by yellow, edible fruits in the shape of long cones. The fruits are about 12 cm tall and have soft, white flesh. The plant can also be kept as a houseplant, which still enables the plant to fruit!
