sitaphals, the epic fruit.

Named for Sita, heroine of the Hindu epic Ramayan, the sitaphal is a much-loved Indian fruit.  Its thick, spiky exterior belies the creamy, sugary sweetness nestled within.  A ripe sitaphal yields to gentle pressure as it opens to offer its fruit to the salivating aficionado.  Sitaphals are cousins of South American cherimoyas, which Mark Twain declared “deliciousness itself”.
