Cherimoya Fruit Salad

Print recipe


  • A cherimoya tastes like a custardy blend of banana, pineapple, papaya, strawberry, and peach.
  • When ripe, the skin is green and gives slightly to pressure like a ripe avocado.
  • These are best served chilled. They pair well with cilantro, vanilla, and bananas and can be used to make a refreshing juice.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 cup cherimoya pulp, seeds removed
  • 1 medium banana, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups fresh orange sections
  • 1 cup mango, cubed
  • 2 cups honeydew melon, cubed
  • Mint leaves for garnish


  1. Place cherimoya pulp and sliced bananas in a bowl. Add oranges and stir gently to cover fruit with orange juice; this will prevent darkening.
  2. Add mango and honeydew. Stir to combine. Cover and chill 1 hour.
  3. Garnish and serve with mint leaves.
