Cherimoya is mainly grown throughout South Asia, America, southern Europe and East Africa. It is the most delicious fruit known to men. The creamy texture of the flesh gives the fruit its secondary name, custard apple.
The fruit is oval, often slightly oblate, with a smooth or slightly tuberculated skin. The fruit flesh is white and creamy, and has numerous dark brown poisonous seeds embedded in it. When ripe, the skin is green and gives slightly to pressure. The fruit can be chilled and eaten with a spoon, which has earned it another nickname, the ice cream fruit. Indeed, in Peru, it is commonly used in ice creams and yogurt.
