Perhaps, they certainly have the same pattern. Just a different texture. Thanks again :)

Oh, hmm, maybe they're of the same genus as cherimoya, then? I'm not sure.

thank you mauna. i havent seen these form a "peel" like the cherimola. They are smooth and soft on the outside and inside. When they fall, they are pretty mushy.
