Cherimoya is also known as the custard apple, and the taste is incredible blend of coconut, banana, pineapple and papaya. But that’s not all…

Tropical apple is prickly and has a yellow-green-brownish skin. Inside it, there is a white flesh that is edible so that the fruit is cut in half, and then consumed with a spoon. The flesh can be enriched with lime juice, but perhaps it is best to enjoy the unique taste while not adding anything further.
Cherimoya is rich in vitamins C, B1, B2, iron, calcium and phosphorus. It even helps in inflammation of the bladder and kidneys.
The fruits are collected while still solid, given the fact that they mature on a home temperature, under the sun. When ripe, it softens under the pressure of the fingers, like kiwi and avocado.
Be careful not to buy brownish or crushed fruits, because that marks the end of their expiration term. Undoubtedly, you can use in a variety of salads or as an additive to various dishes.
