Cherimoya, my delicious new friend

Kris and I have a project: if we see a fruit at the supermarket that we've never tried before, we have to buy it and try it out. As someone who didn't eat a lot of fruit for most of my life, I had a lot of fruit-catching up to do.

My most successful/exciting fruit discovery is the cherimoya. It has a green skin that looks kind of like a weird artichoke, and great big seeds throughout the flesh. The fruit itself tastes kind of like a banana, but better. After thinking about it awhile, I figured out that they kind of taste like banana candy, like banana Runts. However, it doesn't have the artificial candy taste, and is good for you--it's perfect!

I looked the cherimoya up on Wikipedia, just like I do with every new thing I become obsessed with. It says Mark Twain called the cherimoya "the most delicious fruit known to men." I can't disagree!
