Cherimoyas are egg-shaped, globe-shaped, or heart-shaped with an unusual velvety, thin skin that is light green. The flesh is studded with large, black, inedible seeds. The white pulp offers a mild flavor likened to a blend of banana, vanilla, mango, papaya, pineapple, and coconut. The refreshing texture is soft, smooth, and melting, almost custard-like, hence the name custard apple.
You can cut it in half and enjoy eating it (avoid the black seeds). And you can peel, seed, and puree it and fold it into puddings, milkshakes, smoothies, or ice cream.
You should let Cherimoyasripen at room temperature. If they are similar to an almost-ripe avocado then they are ready to eat. Refrigerate the cherimoya as soon as it's ripe because it tastes best after chilling for an hour or two. And It will keep for about four days in the fridge if you are not ready to eat it yet.
