Core Tip: Australian growers of custard apples are reporting sweeter than usual fruit this season.
Australian growers of custard apples are reporting sweeter than usual fruit this season. The custard apple season kicked off in April, with plenty of the creamy and vitamin-rich fruit now available in stores.

Grower Patti Stacey: “The season so far has been excellent across all growing regions. The warm summer has given us a bumper crop and we’ve been lucky to have no major storms, floods or winds come through. When the fruit matures in warmer weather it makes it even sweeter, so this season’s fruit has a deliciously sweet flavour and is filling out well.”

The green-skinned fruit has a fresh and creamy texture that is well suited to sweet dishes or simply enjoyed as a snack, making them a tasty tropical choice throughout autumn and winter.

“During the season I eat one every day for breakfast. It’s a delicious start to the day and because it’s low GI it satisfies my appetite for quite a long time,” Miss Stacey said.

According to goodfruitandvegetables.com.au, custard apples contain Vitamin C, with one serve containing 64.5mg, or 161 per cent of the daily target for Australian adults.
