Sugar Apple

It may resemble a foreign-looking green pinecone before it’s fully opened. However, the taste of the soft white flesh inside is a familiar combination of pineapple-strawberry with the creaminess of a banana. The fruit, sometimes called sweetsop, is ripe when the outer segments start to separate. Enjoy fresh, but remove the many black seeds first because they can be toxic.

Calories in Fruit
