2. Custard Apple
If you haven’t heard of custard apple maybe you have heard of them by another alias. They are also commonly referred to as a bull’s heart or a bullock’s heart. The great thing about a custard apple is that it doesn’t always come in the same size or shape. It comes in different shapes and sizes. While the fruit is absolutely delicious to eat it can make a very rich drink and if wanted can be used as a substitute for milk.
While this fruit has an unusual name, the flavor and texture of this fruit is simply divine. Grown from an evergreen tree mostly in warm climate areas like Grenada this fruit is not found everywhere in the world. When people initially taste the fruit it is said to have a flavor that is comparable to a combination of strawberry and pineapple flavors as the initial taste notes, followed by a more creamy note such as banana or coconut. The exterior is quite prickly and cannot be eaten but the soft inside is a treat to devour. Just make sure you spit out those big black seeds!
