Annona cornifolia is a slow-growing shrub native to savannas and fields of the Cerrado region of Brazil, reaching a height of 4–5 meters. It presers a sunny position on acidic, sandy soils and needs good drainage to thrive. After 4–5 years, if grown in full sun, it produces a blood red fruit, which has an orange aromatic, sweet and highly appreciated flesh containing few seeds. The tree resists frosts to -3°C. It is little known outside of its native range. Propagation is by seeds which have orthodox storage behavior and may take up to 18 months to germinate.
