While visiting a garden I came across the shrub. The shrub is about 6 feet tall.

The owner of the garden would also like to know the name of the plant.

Can anybody help?

it looks a little like a custard apple or a relative of it. Sorry but the pictures aren't very clear. :)

Hi there, from your picture and brief description ,i would assume it may be a Cherimoya (Annona cherimola).

I see why it looks like an Annona, but I think it is an alder [Alnus].

I'm sure if it is Annona.. The fruit seems to be Annona but take a look at the leaves..

I'm pretty sure it's a noni plant, morinda citrifolia. The leaves and fruit look very similar.
