Definition: Cherimoya

Also called a "custard apple," the cherimoya is a heart-shaped fruit with a fragrant, sweet, custard-like flesh. It tastes like a blend of pineapple, mango, and strawberry. This exotic fruit has a multifaceted green exterior, and a cream-colored interior filled with large black seeds.

Originally native to the Andes mountains, the cherimoya, which grows on an evergreen tree, is now popular everywhere.

When left at room temperature, the fruit will ripen within two to seven days, and can be enjoyed on its own, in smoothies, or as a topping on ice cream.
