Cherimoya Fruit/Custard Apple- a.k.a. Romantic Fruit April 25, 2010

Aloha!!

We are sooo excited to share this most succulent tropical fruit with you ~ The heart shaped Cherimoya Fruit (also known as “Romantic Fruit” ).   It is pretty much the epitomy of tropical fruit (in my opinion) … It seriously tastes like a custardy blend of pear, banana, mango, pineapple, lilikoi, vanilla, coconut HEAVEN! All mixed into one!!!! You’ll have to try one to believe us~

It is said to be enjoyed with a loved one … so we wanted to eat it with YOU! 🙂

Here is the video so you can see its succulence in person! (so to speak..)

The cherimoya tree is a native of the Andes Mountain range in South America, the mountain area between Colombia to Bolivia, at an altitude of 1000 to 2000m. But we got ours LOCAL here on Maui, from Mana Foods, our local Organic Store. I am soaking my seeds now and will plant them soon. I guess they grow pretty fast. Now for the meantime, I need to find us the supply tree! Possibly trade some bananas??? ….

Cherimoyas are a rich source of Vitamin C, Calcium, and Niacin. The Incas enjoyed these in ancient times. They used it as an aphrodisiac and to improve fertility… hmmm…. be careful with this one! LOL.

This would be an awesome  base for a creamy green smoothie or even as 5 Star Raw Ice Cream treat! Ooo la la… Or just slice into wedges and scoop out the meat. Loving these!!!

Here is a picture of it growing on the tree Thanks to tradewindsfruit.com. (where you can purchase these seeds!) This was one of the few pics I could find of the whole tree, believe it or not. I will definitely be looking for the tree here on island for more fruit and some personal pics for you guys!
