Custard Apple

We’ve slowly been working our way through the incredible selection of tropical fruits on offer here in Thailand. The custard apple appealed for two reasons. 1) It just looks plain bizarre and 2) Who wouldn’t want to try a fruit with a name like that?

I’m not sure if you’re meant to eat the skin or not but it looked a bit mucky. We carefully pulled it apart and inside were these delicious, gooey segments of apple, kind of suspended in a custardy flesh. Quite strange and very sweet. Each segment has a shiny wee pip inside but they’re easy enough to spit out. Yummy!
