Red Custard Apple Ripening Pro Tips
Red Custard 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 red to almost brown (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 creamy flesh. DO NOT eating the seeds inside.
