Custard apple (Annona reticulate) is a green, cone-shaped fruit with scaly skin and creamy, sweet flesh. It is believed to be originated from the Americas but it can also be found in both tropical and subtropical regions. 


Custard apple is believed to have originated in the Andes Mountains of South America and it can grow in tropical regions with high altitudes. It is believed that Inca tribes used to culture it the Andes Mountains. It was introduced later in South Africa, India, Singapore, and Philippines.    


As it is native to South America, custard apple has been introduced in many countries of South America. Mexico is the top producing country in the world followed by Brazil. Significant amounts of custard apple are also produced in Australia, USA, India, China, Africa, and Thailand. 

Flavours & Texture

Custard apple has a sweet taste similar to other tropical fruits, such as banana and pineapple and they have a creamy texture. Its texture though varies depending on the cultivar and it can be from juicy and aromatic to hard with an astringent taste. Their skin and seeds are not edible.


Cut it in half, scoop out the flesh and discard the seeds. You can eat it raw, in a fruit salad, smoothies, milkshakes, and ice creams. 

Nutritional Value
