HAND GROWN PRODUCE FROM CARPINTERIA, CA SINCE 1871

The Cherimoya is a subtropical fruit native to South America. They grow on large deciduous trees and because of their unique flower shape, and our different insect populations here in California, they are hand pollinated to produce fruit. This extremely laborious task helps us ensure well developed fruit that has the best ratio of flesh to seeds. Picked when firm, allow the cherimoya to sit at room temperature for 4-7 days or until it is slightly soft- not squishy. Best served slightly chilled from a refrigerator, cut the fruit open and scoop out the white flesh. DO NOT EAT THE SEEDS. The white flesh is the consistency of custard, and is very sweet. The flavor is that of a mango, pineapple, banana, and vanilla pudding all mixed together. Very tropical and floral. It is best enjoyed by itself, or with a squeeze of citrus to balance out the sweetness. Cherimoya also makes incredible sorbet and ice cream, once you remove the seeds. It also pairs very well with passionfruit.

 

The medium has 3 fruits, and the large flat rate box has 5 fruits. Cherimoyas are a very delicate fruit, which is why a large portion of the boxes are devoted to padding.

    Between the dragon egg appearance and the flavor, these cherimoyas feel almost otherworldly- the flavor is a light and tropical but deceptively complex one, almost like a pear, mango, and papaya all combined with a perfectly creamy mouth feel. I wish I could say that I did anything more creative than just eat the flesh straight from the rind, but the fruit is so enchantingly wonderful that it never lasts long. Between myself and my family, a single medium box was gone in about an hour. Cherimoyas are such a rare treat, particularly when you are a New Englander like me, I’m so happy and excited to be able to get any, but these particular cherimoyas are next level delicious

    This was my first time trying cherimoya. They were worth it! So delicious, sweet, and complex in flavor. My whole family enjoyed them. Plus, they came with sweet and fragrant tangerines and some gorgeous limes too! I cannot say enough good things about Rincon Tropics. I don’t usually splurge on ordering fruit, but theirs is well worth it and always the best treat!

    A perfect winter treat – especially in a New England winter. Fruits arrived quickly and well packed with no bruising or damage like you can see in grocery store fruits.

    Wonderful sweet flavor and brings back memories when we first found these in Australia.
    A much enjoyed treat – we’ll be getting more as one a day disappears quickly! Thanks for growing them!

    Just the cure for my homesickness 🥹

    Ordered a large box and the fruit arrived beautifully packaged. I let it ripen in the box for 2 days, and sobbed as I ate my first cherimoya after many years. There is truly nothing sweeter and more beautiful than a perfectly ripe cherimoya, these fruits brought back memories and made me feel close to home 💕
