Custard Apple (Noi-na )

Also known as sugar apple, this fruit has a lumpy green skin covering masses of sweet, scented white flesh: in most varieties the fruit can easily be divided into two pieces by hand and the creamy flesh eaten with spoon. Custard apples also form the base for a delicious ice cream, served in Thai restaurants. The main growing areas are the north - central provinces such as Phetchabun and Nakhon Ratchasima, and the peak fruiting season lasts from June to September.
