Here's the sugar apple, or Noi-Na, as it's called in Thailand. I guess this means grenade for obvious reasons. I've known this fruit for a number of years, but only eaten a couple in Thailand for no reason in particular.
I first ate a fruit like this in Mexico some years ago, but it was called Cherimoya (see below). It's of the same genus. They are very similar, as is the custard apple, which I have never had. Often one fruit is misnamed as another as they all look and taste very similar. I'm not always sure what it is I'm eating...
Well, how do they taste? Very tropical, sugary sweet (hence the name), perhaps like a mix of some familiar fruits. No I won't venture to say as opinions on this vary.
