Also known as the sugar-apple, custard apples are quite a peculiar fruit. Originating in the tropical Americas and West Indies, this fruit has spread throughout the world. It consists of a thick rind - resemblant of scales, and a deliciously sweet, creamy flesh. The flavour is often compared to custard (hence the name 😂).
The favourite and most sought-after custard apple is the Pinks Mammoth variety - available here.
This exquisite fruit is not only tasty but very healthy. It is high in energy, an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese, a good source of thiamine and vitamin B6, and provides vitamin B2, B3 B5, B9, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium in fair quantities.
