Also known as custard apple, Cherimoya has a smooth, custard-like flesh that holds a surprising mixture of tropical flavors like papaya, pineapple, mango, coconut and/or banana. It's leathery green skin will have a gold hue, some brown spots and should yield to pressure when perfectly ripe. Slice one down the middle and grab a spoon for a delightful snack -- just be sure to not eat the seeds!
Note: Some cherimoya may arrive slightly under-ripe. Leave at room temperature to fully ripen and can be chilled for 1-2 days when ripe.
