Cherimoya is a fruit from South America. The flesh has a creamy texture reminiscent of custard.

Quality Check

You can’t pick a good cherimoya from its skin. Place it in your hand and squeeze gently using your palm. It should have a slight give similar to a pear. That is how you know it is ripe. Cherimoyas should be stored in the fridge if not eaten within one or two days.


Cut the cherimoya in half. Then pull at the flesh. It should come off in chunks. It can be eaten just like that! Be careful of the seeds and be sure not to eat them. You can suck the flesh from the seeds as well.
