‘Custard Apple’ aka ‘Cherimoya fruit’ which visually isn’t exactly captivating, it’s more like something out of The Flintstones rather than an exquisite fruit. But don’t let its pre-historic appearance put you off. Slice open a Cherimoya and you will discover an awesome fruit, ivory, toffee custard-like flesh, which some say has a mango type fragrance. A ripe cherimoya, like a ripe avocado, should yield to gentle pressure and will usually have brown blemishes on the skin when ripe. Once ripe, cherimoyas can be refrigerated for 1-2 days, but they will lose their flavour if kept longer. They are best eaten as soon as they reach full ripeness, their flavour is most intense when eaten at room temperature or just slightly chilled.
