yes,i've been askin around,searchin d net,, all i can do.i dont think sawachop(or whatever) is d real name.its sounds like,n most likely a broken english name.some call it strawwberry but i definately know its not strawberry.pls any1 out there with what is really called in english??
alright,for those who dont know what i'm talkin about,shawachop is a fruit,i think mostly found in d south-south n south-east part of nigeria(, well i've not seen it in the north n the west).oh,very sweet,i like it alot.it has a white fleshy inside,with black little seeds,like water melon.on the outside,its green,with spikes all over d body.its about the size of a pawpaw fruit,or abit smaller.

so plsssssssss,can any1 out there help me??, i just feel i should know properly,(about)something i like alot like that.

We must not wait for the English man to give everything a name.

Even things they had never seen or known before.

That was how we waited for Mungo Park to come and name the River Niger and almost every other thing in Africa.

I hereby name this fruit Shawachop. period!!!

I was just talking about this fruit again today with someone and it seems to go by alot of names depending on where you are from: soursop, guanabana, etc. I know it to be known as the custard apple as this is the genus that this fruit's family is from. Here is a source if anyone is interested:
