What's the difference between Cherimoya and Sugar Apple?
July 11, 2016 3:51am CST
Here in the Philippines we call Sugar Apple, Atis. I've already tasted Sugar-Apple but not cherimoya which looks really similar to Sugar-Apple. Sugar-Apple is sweet, creamy, and has a bit grainy texture. How many of you have tasted both fruit? What do you like better and why?

It is the same, Cherimoya is the international name while Sugar apple is the filipinized English term for it. The word carabao is not recognized by the English dictionary, they call the animal water buffalo. Yes Filipinos have their own English. Canadians also have English terms Americans and other nationalities wont understand.
