Ah never heard of Monsanto here....Eastwest seed comp there is. Anyway those companies making gmo seeds...we really hve 2 b against them!
This country harbors a very bad company that has hurt other countries around the world. Monsanto seeds are genetically Modified with the same poisons they used in Viet Nam. They are the biggest seed company in the world. But you .cannot reuse the seeds. Why, because that's how they made their seeds. On e you use their seeds, you ha e to buy from them every year, or you could lose your farm. They will sue you. That's why we protest. Countries around the world kicked Monsanto seeds out of their country, and eould not except crops from the USA.
Actually it should mean more than one elder sister and the one saying it happens to live on the visayan part (no offense please) of our beloved country. I still believe that the fruit on the picture is what we call atis (custard apple) in our country. Its counterpart here in the US (which i understand comes from Mexico) is cherimoya. Cherimoya is a cross between our own atis and the soursop (guyabano). I still like the taste of our atis which unfortunately i don't see in any asian groceries here in California.
When shopping in Las Vegas they had it for $6 each. Knowing they were available in the street market in Kathmandu we took all we could get. We took home over 50 fruits for $25 . The airfare will kill you but not the fruit. We enjoyed all with 2 wasted. The finest, sweetest , custard Apple one can enjoy. We do better in Mango season. eat healthy
We had three trees in our yard. I wasn't much of a fan, to sweet. Sugar apple is good though. Can only eat half
I've never seen it cut up like this before. You basically just peel it open and start eating it and spit out the seeds
I try to do that but watermelon seeds are too small to spit so end up chewing it or looking for the seedless water melon
In Indonesia we call it srikaya yum yum love it especially when I can spit the seeds from my mouth like a cannon ball
Hard to say how good this fruit is. When our country has gmo,d our apples. What was the ground like when our country pulled out of the Philippines? Contaminated!!! And then too, our country houses Monsanto, they should be charged with crimes against humanity. Now we have to look for ORGANIC food to be safe from the poisons. Wake up !! What are you feeding your kids??
It looks like soursop,you were right - you wouldn't have regretted buying it - it's very sweet though and grainy!
this is not "atis" or custard apple but it looks the same. They say it's guya-apple( guya is short for guyabano) because the flesh looks like guyabano. it' s yummy! and it probably doesn't originate here in the philippines.
I was looking for soursop in an Asian store. They pointed me to this fruit. I didn't buy it cause I didn't know what it was.
Where to buy is the problem. I live in a rural area that doesn't have an oriental grocery and hispanic grocery store has limited produce
