Annona cacans, with the common names: Araticum-cagão, Araticum de paca, Araticum-pacarí, is a fruit tree native to Atlantic Forest and Cerrado vegetation in Brazil and Paraguay.[1][2]


This tree is among the largest in the genus Annona. It usually grows 5–30 metres (16–98 ft).

The fruit's succulent clear or white flesh is edible with a sweet or bitter flavor. It cannot be eaten in large amounts due to the laxative properties. They are also a food source of the paca. Its pollen is shed as permanent tetrads.[3]
