Chirimoya is one of the most exquisite fruits
Chirimoya is an exotic fruit of the anone family.
Its flavor is sweet and complex. It is sugary, juicy and is often compared to a mixture of fruits such as banana and pear. Some even find it tastes like raspberries.
Its white and creamy flesh is tasted with a spoon.
Interesting: Chirimoya was Mark Twain's favorite fruit and he called it "the most delicious fruit known to man".
How to eat it
Chirimoya is at its best when its maturity is just right. Neither too hard nor too ripe.
Caution: Chirimoya is a fragile fruit that does not like to be too cold - keep it at least 8°C before it is ripe - nor too hot. It does not like to be rolled or hit. A chirimoya that turns black is a sign that it has been mistreated.
We deliver your chirimoyas usually firm.
After a few days at room temperature, it becomes slightly soft to the touch. This is when you should eat it (or put it in the refrigerator if you don't want to eat it right away). It is normal that brown spots appear on the skin as it ripens.
To eat a Chirimoya, cut it in half and eat the white pulp with a small spoon. Spit out the black seeds as they are not edible. Although it is full of active ingredients, it is not recommended to eat the skin of the fruit, which can be toxic in certain doses.
The anona is also a great ingredient for making healthy and delicious smoothies. You will need to peel it and remove the seeds by hand before putting it in the blender.
