Annona cherimola, the fruit is known as Castor Apple. The tree is a small deciduous or semi-evergreen tree.The fruits are variable in shape, heart shaped, oblong or irregular. The size ranges from 7 centimetres to 12 centimetres. The skin or covering of custard apple is thin but tough, which is usually yellow or brownish when ripe. (As shown on the left). The flavor of the fruit is sweet and agreeable. This is one of my favorite fruits, I found quite a number of Annona Cherimola  fruit trees in the park. lotus banana    lotus banana     
lotus banana Musa rosacea, the common name is Lotus Banana, Origin from Thailand. The most popular plants in this newly opened SengKang River Walk Park, the trees are quite short, with flowers in red and pink, small bunches of banana. Is the banana taste nice? I have not tried before. But definitely those Lotus Banana trees are the best landscaping tree in the park.
