Enjoying fresh cherimoya
Serve cherimoya well chilled, cut it in half lengthways, with the seeds removed and the flesh scooped out with a spoon. It can also be peeled and cubed and added to fruit salads or used as a mousse or pie filling. Some cherimoya fans like to add a sprinkle of lime juice on their fruit.
Because of its creamy texture, cherimoya can be served frozen and eaten like ice cream.
Keeping cherimoya looking good
To prevent the fruit from darkening, cherimoya pieces can be dipped in lemon or orange juice.
