Cherimoya

May 23, 2013

Cherimoya

The Cherimoya is a subtropical fruit native to mountains of Ecuador, Peru, and the Andes.  It is a member of the custard apple family.  There are over 50 varieties of cherimoyas.

            Cherimoyas  have scale patterned skin from bronze to green.  The cream colored flesh is super juicy sweet with the flavor reminiscent of pineapple, strawberry, and banana, and is slightly granular. When ripe, it is soft like a kiwi or mango.  It contains inedible shiny black seeds.  The fruit grows on a thorny branched tree up to a height of 24 feet.  The fruit can range in size from 1/2 to 4-1/2 pounds.

            Look for fruit that it firm and heavy for it’s size.  Cherimoyas spoil easily, especially since they are extremely sensitive to heat and cold.  They also bruise easily. They contain niacin, iron, and vitamin C.
