The cherimoya, also spelled chirimoya , is the fruit of the species Annona cherimola, which generally is thought to be native to the Peruvian andes.Today, cherimoya is grown throughout
South Asia, Central America, South America (mainly in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia), California, Portugal, southern Andalucia, and South of Italy (Calabria). Mark Twain called the cherimoya "the most delicious fruit known to men." The creamy texture of the flesh gives the fruit its secondary name, custard apple.

There is a variety in the productivity of different types, Fino de Jete accounts for 90% of the harvest. The rest mainly consists of Campas, and to a lesser extent, Pacica and Bonita. When you are buying cherimoya you should look that there are no imperfections in the skin. To ensure the cherimoya stays fresh for the maximum period of time, it should be bought when it's a little green and then let it ripen at room temperature at home. It is ripe when the skin color has gone from dark to light green or yellowish green. Other indicators include the appearance of a creamy layer between shell segments and improved surface smoothness.
Its major component is water. It mainly consists of carbohydrates, including glucose and fructose predominate.
It is low in fat and protein, but due to its high sugar content, its caloric value is quite high.
