Have you ever tried a Cherimoya? The texture is much like a flaky white fish but tastes like creme brûlée. You have to wait until the fruit is very soft or almost overripe to eat it. One way to tell if the fruit is ready is to see the stem move away from the flesh and even see a little mold there. Break open the fruit and eat the insides being careful not swallow the seeds. Cherimoyas have a lot of large black seeds so as you eat the fruit you have to spit out the seeds, but it's totally worth it.
Cherimoya is great for your hair, nail and skin, it has high levels of Vitamin C which benefit collagen formation, as well as it provides the beneficial copper enzyme need to maintain hair color, preventing pre-mature graying. Cherimoyas are high in fiber, iron, and niacin, and contain powerful cytotoxins said to combat cancer, as well they are a good source of B Vitamins.
Break up a Cherimoya and add it to your next fruit salad for an extra satisfying meal or eat a large one as a meal. This fruit salad was made with all the local ripe fruit I could find at the Carlsbad Ranch Market which is located next to our yoga80 Carlsbad studio.
