It is a rare Anonna. Large fruit, sometimes over 6" long, having similarities in both shape and size to the Annona cherimola. The rind tends to be either green or pink-purple, with white or pinkish flesh respectively. Some varieties have deep red flesh. Flavor is said to be excellent in many varieties, rivaling that of the cherimoya and sugar apple. Ilama is the most cold sensitive of all the Annona. Typically fruits mature from July to December. The fruit is almost always eaten raw, out of hand. It grows best in climates having a dry season, followed by heavy rainfall. Ilama fruits perish within days of harvest and the fruit transports very poorly, hence its relative obscurity to much of the world.

There are many wrong info in your site.
I just glanced at it, but already many.
for example: the images on Soncoya site are Biriba (rollina). only an image on the right site is from Soncoya.
You say that Diversifolia would be the most cold sensible, even worse than cherimoya. Cherimoya is one of the most cold hardiest among annonas.
It's just examples, but there are too may errors in your site. wrong info.
