സീതാപഴം പഴേ സീതാപഴമല്ല. (Custard Apple is not the old Custard Apple).

I like the custard apple. But it was difficult to enjoy it because of the numerous seeds clinging inside the tasty flesh.

Not anymore, the new arrivals which are significantly bigger and practically seedless (less and easily removable seeds) are quite easy to enjoy and delactably sweeter.

Ever since I got hold of them, I am having one every day. That’s not a small quantity. They are bigger and I even got one weighing over 700 grams. It’s full of indulgence, heavenly pleasure in finishing it off all by myself.

True to my controversial stand that all pleasurable things are sinful.

I read somewhere that the glycemic index of custard apple is 54. And it has fibre. Then it can’t be too bad. But I am not too sure as it’s very very sweet. When I am given a choice of the finest of Malgoa mango and this golden custard apple, I may go for this Seethaphal.

Someone commented that it’s genetically modified! Well, what’s wrong there? Perhaps that’s required for the seedless outcome, taste and size. Also GM could engineer a pest resistant variety. In which case, there could be less pesticides.

One thing is for sure, if and when I succeed to be a farmer, there will be a few golden custard apple trees.
