Look For

Fruits that are yellow-green, firm and without blemishes. Dark spots and splotches should be avoided.

To Store

Cherimoyas will ripen at room temperature for a few days until softened. They can then be tightly wrapped and refrigerated for up to 4 days.

To Prepare

The pulp of the cherimoya is the only edible part, so remove the seeds and peel before eating. Halve the fruit and spoon the inside from the shell. Cherimoyas are best served well-chilled.
