Atemoya Ripening Pro Tips
Atemoya is ripe when it is soft to the touch and an imprint is left when pressure is applied to it. The color of the skin may darken from green to yellow (and even black if exposed to the cold), however this will not adversely impact the fruit. The most common way to consume is to break it open and consume the white flesh. DO NOT eating the seeds inside.
