Shipped Directly From Rick's Produce
It’s the long-awaited Cherimoya season! Cherimoya is a tropical fruit that earned the moniker, “dragon apple” for its custardy apple filling and dragon-like scales. It tastes like nature’s creamy, tropical pudding with flavors of banana, papaya, pineapple, and coconut!
For this Holiday season, Rick is pairing these heart-shaped wonders with his limited Fuyu Persimmon harvest, as well as his Passion Fruit spread that is tangy, crunchy (edible seeds), and packed with sour-sweetness. Together, they are the perfect tropical medley, destined to spread holiday cheer!

Persimmons should be eaten when ripe and even overripe! They can definitely make your mouth pucker if they’re not a delightful autumn orange-red. A ripe persimmon will still be firm and crisp, but the flavor will be sweet. When you’re ready to eat your persimmons, cut off the leafy stem, slice lengthwise, and spoon out the tender flesh right into your mouth! Or slice into wedges for a salad or snackable bites.
Preparing cherimoya is easy, but takes a little patience and a sense of humor. There’s no graceful way to eat cherimoya; there are hard, inedible seeds to separate and flan-like fruit to slurp up. That’s what makes cherimoya so special to enjoy with kids and loved ones who won’t judge you for getting a little messy in the presence of exquisite fruit. Cherimoya can be eaten raw (without the seeds) or cooked into sweet and savory recipes alike. Add pitted cherimoya flesh to your morning granola, or evening ice cream! Raw cherimoya fruit is also a decadent addition to salads, pastries, desserts and drinks.

Cherimoyas are one of my favorite fruits ever, so I often buy them from various websites and facebook posts throughout the season. This batch from Rick's is the best I ever had - massive fruit with excellent flavor and quality, picked & shipped at the perfect time. This is the box that made me a FruitStand.com loyalist. I really should keep it a secret so I don't have more competition for boxes next year.
JUST PERFECT. WILL ORDER AGAIN
I got my third time order previously I received passion fruit and in another order avocados and I did the jujube and pomegranate. So now I received cherimoya and persimmons and wow. Sooooo good. The quality size taste level of ripeness. Just fantastic. I’ll be back to the farmstand to love eating your exceptional fruits and veggies
My first time tasting persimmons and I love them! The order arrived on time and the fruit was good to eat in two days. Looking forward to enjoying these over the holidays with family!
This was a gift to a sister-in-law. She was surprised at the unique selection, looking forward to tasting the Persimmons and experiencing Cherimoya for the first time. She also sent a picture of her Fruit Stand box and it looked great! Thank you
