How Do You Like ‘Dem Apples? Sugar Apples That Is

So sweet, fragrant and beautiful, sugar apples are a wonderful treat if you are able to find them. Also known as annona squamosa or sweetsop, in New York City I always head to Chinatown to find them and they are a nice treat to have to give you a different taste of fruit that you would normally find in your typical neighborhood supermarket. Give it a try if you haven’t had them before. You can cut them in half and eat them by scooping out the insides, but I usually buy extremely ripe ones and just easily pull off the outside scales and bite right into it. If you love guava, you must try a sugar apple.
