ice cream grows on trees …who knew?

Cherimoya Image



Cherimoyas are native to the mountains of Ecuador and Peru. Early Americans discovered them and introduced them to Europe. Now they are grown in most tropical areas around the world and in Southern California.

Cherimoyas have a wonderfully sweet, custard-like, banana-pineapple flavor when ripe. The inner flesh is soft, moist and creamy-white with large inedible seeds. Its flavor is so good that even Mark Twain referred to the fruit as "deliciousness itself!" They are also known as Custard Apples and are a close relative to Atemoyas.
