Custard Apple – King of fruits for me
In India, we call “Mango” as the king of fruits. But, for me, Custard Apple (aka Sugar-Apple or सीताफल or சீதாப்பழம்) will be the King of fruits and my favourite.
I didn’t feel like this always. 20 years ago, when travelling in Australian outback near Cairns, I was offered a natural (forest-grown) custard apple by our friendly naturalist (and tour guide), it tasted heavenly – A taste, I can recall vividly even today. Ever since all other fruits come second to custard apple.
Yesterday, my sister gave me this ‘large’ custard apple and I loved it!
