Cherimoyas’ skin can be smooth, slightly textured, or knobby and is light green, yellow-green, to dark green with a distinct scale-like pattern. The skin can also be thin or thick, velvety, leathery, or smooth. Underneath the surface, the flesh is ivory to cream-colored and has a soft, creamy, and tender consistency. The flesh also encases a few to many hard, black-brown, glossy seeds. Cherimoya flesh has a tropical, fruity, and sweet flavor, sometimes mixed with subtle tangy undertones. The fruits are said to have a candy-like sweetness. Cherimoyas are a source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, and riboflavin. The fruits also provide fiber, potassium, folate and other nutrients, including thiamine, magnesium, vitamin E, zinc, manganese, phosphorus, and niacin.
