Custard apples


A trio of custard apples

Wow, there sure are a lot of strange fruits in this world! This one might not be one of the strangest, but it is yet another delicious one. They are called custard apples or sugar apples (น้อยหน่า [noinaa] for the standard size, น้อยโหน่ง [noinong] for the large size like this one). They are very sweet with a soft pear-like texture. The only problem is that the small ones tend to have lots of little seeds. The larger ones are easier to eat and have much more of the tasty flesh.
