Cherimoya (Annona cherimola) is a green, cone-shaped fruit with scaly skin and creamy, sweet flesh. Thought to have originated in the Andes mountains of South America, it’s grown in tropical areas with high altitudes. Due to its creamy texture, cherimoya is also known as custard apple. It’s often eaten with a spoon and served chilled like custard. Cherimoya has a sweet taste similar to other tropical fruits, such as banana and pineapple.
Rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, this unique fruit may boost immunity, fight inflammation, and promote eye and heart health.
