Anona.—The seeds of A. squamosa, L., Sugar Apple or Sweet Sop of the West and East Indies, are said to be poisonous and to be used to kill lice, while the bark is a drastic cathartic. The seeds of A. muricata, L., A. palustris, L., and A. spinescens, Mart., are employed to poison fish and to exterminate destructive insects. (Ph. Rev; Oct., 1896.)
