Custard Apples

Our custard apples are the perfect treat to brighten your day. Their creamy, luscious texture melts in your mouth, delivering a sweet and tangy burst of flavour. These fruits are grown with love, harvested at the peak of ripeness to ensure every bite is a delight. If you’ve never had a custard apple before, they kind of taste like a blend of pineapple and banana with a hint of vanilla. You can enjoy them fresh, in smoothies, or even in desserts.

When you’re at the store, look for custard apples with a greenish-yellow hue and a fragrant aroma. The skin should be slightly soft to the touch but not mushy. Avoid any with too many black spots or a very hard surface. A perfectly ripe custard apple will yield to gentle pressure and have a smooth, almost velvety texture. Remember, the ripeness of the fruit can also be judged by its scent – a sweet, tropical aroma means it’s ready to eat.

Custard apples are incredibly versatile. For a simple treat, cut one in half and scoop out the creamy flesh with a spoon. Add it to your morning smoothie for a tropical twist. They also make a fantastic base for desserts like custard apple ice cream or sorbet. Try mixing the pulp with yoghurt and a drizzle of honey for a quick and healthy snack.
