Please let me know what this fruit is.  It doesn’t taste that great, but I’d like to know what it is.

I thought it was possibly in the Annona family and with your opinions I cross checked it and it does appear to be a pond apple.  It tastes similar to the Asimina reticulata.  The tree I found was in Palma Sola Botanical Park, Bradenton, FL.

Here’s another fruit I did not recognize.  Again it was not very tasty.

Maybe Bunchosia argentea or species / peanut butter fruit Ash tastes pretty good if you get on the  stage and as long as you like peanut butter. It tastes like sweet peanut butter . It turns orange red color transparent skin and skin gets kind of shiny as well and lastly super soft. If you pick it too early it'll taste kind of chlorophyll / grassy taste to it

I appreciate the replies.  It didn't taste anything like peanut butter.  Just blah.  I had one of these plants and sold it.  Glad I did.

I ate a whole bunch of them before I could do taste like peanut butter . There's probably an issue with the plant maybe too much water or something else . Has sold some to customers after they tried the fruit . Of course peanut butter lovers .
