  • 1 whole Cherimoya


  • Use a very sharp knife to cut the Cherimoya in half or into quarters.
  • Use your fingers to sort of pull apart the flesh — you’ll notice it falls apart in chunks.  Eat them! The seeds usually come off in chunks as well — you can suck the flesh from around them, but please be careful not to swallow them. (As with many fruits, the seeds are poisonous!)
  • And for a slightly less messy method, use a spoon to scoop the flesh out of the skin .You do this much like you would an avocado.
