Sweet and fragnant, this delicious tropical fruit is packed with nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants. Mark Twain even described it once as "the most delicious fruit known to man," with a custard-like taste that mixes the flavors of banana, pineapple and strawberry. Cherimoya contains a high amount of dietary fiber, helping slow the absorption of cholesterol in the gut, as well as a high amount of vitamin C, great for building up your immune system and keeping colds and flus at bay.
Cherimoyas should give to gentle pressure, similar to pears and avocados. Their skin is a light green and often turn dark when over-ripe. Store in the refrigerator to keep from spoiling.
