Custard-apple Na

Called na, or mang cau, the custard apple has a thick, green outer layer with soft white pulp. There are two varieties of custard apple, the friable custard apple and the tough custard apple. The tastiest of all is the tough custard-apple of Cap (also custard-apple of Vung Tau).

The tough custard-apple has firm and abundant pulp, and it is sweeter than any other variety; it has few seeds and thin peel. The peel of the Vung Tau custard-apple is rough and warty, but its good taste is praise-worthy. Custard-apples are grown more in the South than in the North.
