Heart shaped fruit

A few days ago I found this cute heart shaped fruit that I had never seen before!
I fell in love with its cuteness and unique texture.
It's called "Cherimoya".
It has a velvety and very delicate flesh inside with big and hard seeds
and so sweet and yummy!
I want to grow the seeds, but the seeds may not like the cold weather of Canada,
But it's worth trying!
What are your favorite fruits?


  1. I tried! :D Is so good and strange!!

    And you, JooJoo, are sweet.. Like your colors. :)

  2. Wow, that's so neat!
    It's hard to pick a favorite fruit, but I think my favorite fresh fruits/berries are cherries=)

  3. Nice! it must be yummy...
    My favorite fruits are: chino , pomegranate and watermelon... and ofcourse black cherries and clementine :D hard to pick just one! but if i have to, i would say raspberries of Damavand!

  4. I used to have a cherimoya tree in my yard when I lived in the tropics. They are yummy!

    My favorite though has to be mango. Real mangos not the horrible unripe ones you get up here.

    Sweet, delicious, bright orange and juicy.........I can taste them now.

  5. My favorite fruits are: figs, atemoya (cherimoya's cousin), mangoes, persimons, oranges, strawberries.
    I love all fruits...and thanks God we have lots of fruits here!

  8. Great! Chile, my country is one of the largest producers in the world (here we called chirimoya with "i")". Since childhood I have always grown up with its very special flavor and the smell of its trees, so delicious, without doubts is my favorite.
    There is a very common dessert called "Chirimoya Alegre" consisting of chirimoya chunks in orange juice. :) Sorry my english and congrats for your wonderfull work and blog, Regards from Chile ;)

  15. Hi! I added your blog in my favorite links of my blog!:)

  16. So cute and soft...You blog present very soft aesthetic beauty :-)

  17. yellow watermelons, clementines and blackberries and mangoes.

  18. Hi ! This is the first comment I leave on your blog. I love your work : each time, your creation are full of poetry and make me dream of fantastic world.

    I come from a french island were cherimoya is commonly named "coeur de boeuf". That means "ox's heart" because of the heart shape of this fruit. I can't explain why we made the comparison with the heart of a ox, perhaps because it was the biggest animal encountered in house at the time of my grandfather.

    To answer your question : my favorite fruits are mangos, bananas (but the very little variety), letchis and longans.

    (I apology to you for my english)

  20. Dear Afi,

    I love this fruit!
    I believe it is similar to the custard-apple as we call in India or 'sitaphal' the local name. I used to have the tree in my grandma's place. Thanks for the post!
