Cherimoyas can grow as small as ¼ pound each up to 5 pounds and are a conical or heart shaped green fruit covered in bumps. The flesh is white and creamy and dotted with big black seeds. Depending on the variety, they are mellow sweet to tangy or acidic sweet with suggestions of mangos, pineapples, banana, papaya, strawberries and vanilla custard but honestly I can’t compare it to anything else. Mark Twain called the cherimoya “deliciousness itself.” The season runs from March to June with the peak time in March and April. Cherimoya’s are grown in California from Santa Barbara all the way down to San Diego.
