Mystical Fruit – Cherimoya

I’m the less creepy brother of pitaya (e.g. dragon fruit)

 Feeling adventurous?  It’s time to forget your safe fruits (good bye strawberries, pears, apples, and oranges) and try something new.

 Alright, if you’re living in the Southern hemisphere, this may not be an “odd” fruit, but I just discovered the joys of this fruit 2 weeks ago so let me enjoy this honeymoon period while it lasts.

 This fruit tastes like a creamy version of pineapple, papaya, strawberries, and bananas. When picking this fruit, look for one that is uniformly green. Let the fruit ripen at room temperature; a cherimoya is ready to eat when it gives slightly to pressure. Cut it like an apple and remove the black seeds as you eat; the skins are not edible.

 Next time, skip the trip to Jamba Juice and just buy a cherimoya.
