Ripening & Storage Guide

Atemoya

Atemoya is a medium-to-large, heart-shaped or rounded fruit, with pale-green (when ripe), bumpy skin. The flesh inside is creamy white, uniquely custard-like, juicy, sweet, a little tart, and fragrant with a tropical aroma. Atemoya should be kept at room temperature in a brown paper bag to ripen, similar to an avocado. This fruit is ripe when you gently squeeze it and it has some give to it. Once ripe, it will keep up to three days in the refrigerator. This fruit is best eaten fresh and raw. Cut it open, scoop out the soft sweet flesh and eat chilled. Do not eat the black seeds or the skin.
