Canistel Pro Tips

For optimal freshness, we ship these Canistel fruits unripe. As they ripen, their texture softens, resembling a boiled egg yolk, and their flavor transforms into a delightful cake-like taste.

Pro Tip: Speed up ripening by placing the fruit in a paper bag at room temperature. Slow down the ripening process by refrigerating.
