While at a market in Chinatown today, I was able to find some Ramfal. After reading my blog entry about Sitafal, you will know that Ramfal is it's "counterpart" fruit. (To read my entry on Sitafal, click here.) This fruit may also be known as "soursop" or "guanabana".

It is a larger fruit compared to the Sitafal; this one being approximately twice the size. As you can see, the outer skin is somewhat different, in that it is not compartmentalized. The outer layer is also smoother and shinier than the one of the Sitafal.

Getting to the inside of this fruit is also much easier. It simply needs to be cut in half.

Once cut, the fruit can be eaten right off the skin. The texture is kind of a combination of 'banana meets bread'. In any case, it still has its characteristic custard-like flavour (as does the Sitafal).

This fruit contains many smooth, brown seeds, which are not meant to be eaten.

Ramfal goes very well with mixed drinks, smoothies, yoghurt and ice cream.
