Quality and ripeness

Use

Cut the fruit lengthwise, remove the seeds and remove the pulp with a knife or spoon. The black seeds inside the pulp and the scaly skin are not edible.
The fruit is meaty and soft with a sweet taste that resembles a combination of banana, strawberry and pineapple. Tip: the flesh is quite sweet. A little lemon juice accentuates the flavour. The cherimoya is delicious to eat by itself and is very suitable for fruit salads or yoghurt. Also tasty as an appetizer with ham.
