    We bought some of these from Tesco last year, your right they were rock hard and I'm afraid they went bad before they ripened. But having now hear how delicious they are we will duly try again, but maybe not from Tesco this time.

    They were called anonas in the place where I was born, in Africa.

    Just an hour ago I pressed some cherimoya (they weren't tender enough) in a supermarket here in Sri Lanka and thought of you.

    That was before I logged on to your blog and found this.


    I live in Chile, South América. Chirimoyas, as we call them, are a spring and summer staple.
    A favourite chirimoya dessert is called "Chirimoya Alegre", wich roughly translates to "Merry Chirimoya", and it is just oh-so-simple but delicious.
    Peel, seed and roughly chop desired amount of chirimoyas, cover with orange juice (natural and just made), add sugar to taste. Chill for 30 min. and enjoy.


    shall definately be adventurous and try a custard apple when I next see one, as I love custard!
    A Marks and Spencers simply food opened in our town recently, and the one thing I will buy from there is their fruit..... it's expensive....... but it's ripe and delicious, worth the bit extra. Hugo gets a ripe melon from there, chops it up, shreds some parma ham, or serrano ham, dumps them all on a large plate, and we both grab a fork and tuck in, yummy!
