I'd be tempted to say it's cherimoya.

The first three look like the atemoya called Lisa, aka 48-26. I have no clue on the last one.

i agree with Harry, Atemoyas tend to look very asymmetrical compared to other anonas

I think they are cherimoyas. The last pic looks like a Selma. Selmas aren't very attractive-looking, from the pics that I've seen of them. I have 2 fruits developing right now, but are still small

The leaves look too hairy to be atemoya. All appear to be cherimoya.

jfernandez,
What do you mean by "3 in 1 a mix of Booth, Pierce and African Pride pollen"?

I collected pollen from the 3 annonas and mix them together and pollinated my Pierce.

Cherimoyas are generally more hairy than atemoyas. The fruit in the first picture is covered with hair.

I think they are atemoyas. The last tree looked just like my "Lisa" tree. They if they have the attributes of both a sugar apple and a cherimoya, then it is probably the hybrid, Atemoya.

Are you in FL or Cal? If Florida, then even more likely it is a hybrid Atemoya b/c cherimoya doesn't do well here.

Good luck!

Vince, thanks for speculating. I will post cleaner shots with leaf structure so everyone can see and speculate. from what I have seen at least the last one looks more like Cherimoya, flat skin. again, I may be wrong.

Your Welcome! I don't think it could be sugar apples because they seem to have a blend of both fruit features. I hear that annonas can hybridize under the right conditions. You have a few different trees right? I think the last ones look like Cherimoya too! Good for you! We don't get many of them around here in FL, only sugar apples and some home grown Atemoyas.
I keep a look out for your pics!
All the best!
