Let me introduce… the most delicious and my favourite fruit on this planet: The Chirimoya. These babies are the closest you will ever get to eating dessert when you’re actually eating fruit. Rather odd looking from the outside, the inside is full of white, heavy, creamy goodness. They taste sweet and juicy. Some say the taste resembles a mixture of peaches, pineapple and strawberries with whipped cream. To me they just taste like chirimoyas. Maybe because I have known this fruit my whole life. Originated in Central America it is grown today in South America, South Asia, Southern California, Portugal and of course Andalusia, Spain. In Almuñécar, the town in south spain where most of my spanish family still lives and where I spent countless holidays throughout my life, chirimoya plantations are a common sight. Together with my Dad I used to stroll through the countryside and eat the ripe chirimoyas that fell off the trees.
