The first time the Spaniards tried this fruit, they called it “white delicacy” due to its intense sweetness, similar to the sugar cane. It is rough on the outside but docile on the inside; the cherimoya looks like a typical fruit of the tropical heat, just like the banana or the pineapple. However, it grows over the 1500 m.a.s.l. (4921,26 f.a.s.l.) at the foot of the Andes mountain range, very far from the Caribbean.
