EN EN: The canistel or egg fruit is a very sweet fruit. It is somewhat the size of an egg and it has a shell with the colour of an egg yolk. It comes from Central America. It has a very rich flavour, and a consistency like boiled egg-yolk. It was an important part of the diet in ancient Peru. Canistel fruit can be eaten fresh, with salt and lemon juice, with mayonnaise or into custard or ice cream.
