This guy goes by many names: custard apple, sitaphal, cherimoya, soursop or “What the heck is that?”. What the heck that is, is a fruit of the cherimoya family that’s big, green and lumpy. It looks like some kind of giant tree fungus from the outside, but on the inside are lots of big seeds covered in a sweet, creamy coating similar to a custard texture.
We were so excited to see these on our recent trip to Melbourne – we had only gotten them in India and I assumed they would forever stay in my memory instead of in my mouth again. We ate our fill and then some! They were amazing and I highly recommend a taste if you ever get a chance.
So… would you eat it?
