This is my favorite fruit

I have tasted so far..In the whole world here on my counter.



A chermoya.

If you never ate one get one and eat it,you won't regret it. They are like banana,pineapple and mango but they have a flavor all thier own.

7. Let me know if you like it

Secondwind,when you get some. I wait until its a tiny bit softer than a ripe mango before I eat it. Dont let it get too much softer than that and eat it chilled.

3. It truly is great, but second best to mangosteen. Spelled Cherimoya, with an 'i'

It is grown in southern California.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherimoya

American writer Mark Twain called the cherimoya "the most delicious fruit known to men".[8] The creamy texture of the flesh gives the fruit its secondary name, the custard apple.


"The pineapple, the mangosteen, and the cherimoya", wrote the botanist Berthold Carl Seemann, "are considered the finest fruits in the world, and I have tasted them in those localities where they are supposed to attain their highest perfection the pineapple in Guayaquil, the mangosteen in the Indian Archipelago, and the cherimoya on the slopes of the Andes, and if I were asked which would be the best fruit, I would choose without hesitation, cherimoya. Its taste, indeed, surpasses that of every other fruit, and Haenke was quite right when he called it the masterpiece of Nature."[25]

5. Mangosteen is a tough competitor

But I gotta go with cherimoya. They're so fucking delicious. It took all my will power to not eat the second half.

They have them at a grocery store near me but they are always sold out.
There were just 2 left I just about shit I was so happy.

I tried my first cherimoya a while ago. Had no idea what sort of fruit it might be so I tried it. I try to at least buy 3 special things at the grocery store.

Good quality whole bean coffee,
Stuff to make an indian dish from scratch,
And a fruit I never tried before or an exquisite fruit I love.

Last month it was champagne mangos.

4. Yesssss!!!!!!

Now if they could only find a way to breed a seedless variety...

They're also finicky about pollinating, which is too bad.

They are absolutely delicious, taste almost like a scoop of vanilla ice cream. They show up in SoCal but they're expensive (~+$7/lb). They're a lot more common in South America.

6. They are

$8.99 a pound out here in Maryland. The only store I know of near me that sells them are Wegmans.

You know what I wish I could afford to make with cherimoya?

Italian cherimoya ice
Or cherimoya ice cream.
That foodgasm would just about kill me it would taste so good. .

8. Forgot

If I dont want to make an indian dish from scratch I'll do something thai.

And the last thing I try to get every month is get one amazing cheese or try one I have never had.
