Well, after many years of waiting, I finally got to try one of my seedling Abiu fruits. They are a little bigger than a tennis ball and appealing in color and shape. I was a little unsure when to pick them so I am still experimenting with that. I think I have 8 fruits to fiddle with. From Jul 17, 2011 From Jul 17, 2011 From July 22, 2011 From July 22, 2011
There was a slight amount of latex near the skin...something I hear is more pronounced when the fruit is underripe. The flesh away from the skin was smooth textured and very sweet. I wouldn't call the flesh creamy in the sense of cherimoya or atemoya. It has a more gelatinous consistancy. It had two seeds which were longer and thinner than I remember other Abiu seeds to have been. Overall, a very nice refreshing tasting fruit. If it fruits now every year, I'll be very pleased.
