Custard apples are a decadent and deliciously sweet sub-tropical fruit. The Australian custard apple is a hybrid of the sugar apple (Annona squamosa) and the cherimoya (Annona cherimola), and is unique to any other custard apples grown around the world. Originally native to South America, this luscious and flavoursome fruit has Australia as its largest commercial producer.
They have a deliciously creamy texture, sweet taste and are best enjoyed fresh or as a simple yet impressive dessert. Custard apples are eaten when soft and only the flesh is eaten.
One serve (150g) contains all the vitamin C an Aussie adult needs in a day.
