Cherimoya, scientifically known as Annona cherimola is native to Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Ecuador and Colombia. We source our Cherimoya mainly from Chile and the state of California as they grow best at higher altitudes. Cherimoya also known as Custard Apple has an intoxicating combination of tropical flavors such as bananas, coconuts, papaya, mango and pineapple when perfectly ripe. The flesh is fragrant, ivory colored and custard-like. The seeds are not edible.
Cherimoya has a very high content of vitamin B6 and is an excellent source of vitamin C which helps to boost the immune system. It also contains calcium which helps to strengthen the bones. Custard Apple season fluctuates between Winter, Spring and Summer.
Fun Fact: Cherimoya is considered an ancient food from the Incas in South America.

Tropical Fruit ripens best in warm temperatures. If you have received fruit that has not ripened and you wish to speed up the ripening process, we recommend to either put your fruit in paper bags or wrapped in a kitchen towel and placed in a dry, warm area. Alternatively, you may also place your fruit outside in the sun (in an area mindful of bug) which will also speed up the ripening process.
