Custard Apple

Cherimoya, also known as the Custard Apple has a creamy flesh that is both sweet and a little sour, resembles and tastes like custard.

The skin, thin but tough, may be yellow or brownish when ripe. A pointed, fibrous, central core, attached to the thick stem. The tree is naturally a fairly heavy bearer, the short twigs are shed after they have borne flowers and fruits.

This fruit not only makes a great topping to any dessert, but is high in Vitamin B6 and riboflavin.
