I purchased some Achacha fruit the other day so I could try them and see if they were worth growing in the backyard. I don't see them for sale very often but for the past few years the trees and fruit have been marketed strongly as a potential new consumer winner so I was keen to see how they tasted. Unfortunately, I can't say I was overly impressed and although the taste of the Achacha was quite nice and similar to a lychee/custard apple there was nothing to encourage me buying a tree for the backyard. The fruit was easy enough to open and is done by pressing a finger or thumb nail into the skin then breaking the fruit in half revealing the pulp, which surrounds an oversized seed. The disappointment comes when you pop the fruit in your mouth and realise just how little pulp there is to eat. Also, there is a small segment of seed that annoyingly breaks away from the main seed during eating so you need to be careful not to swallow it. Overall, I reckon there are many other fruit trees to grow in the garden which give a better return than the Achacha and I certainly won't be buying anymore fruit from the store. I suppose if you had plenty of space growing an Achacha tree would be an interesting exotic as the fruit does taste quite nice, however, you'd need quite a lot of produce to get a worthwhile feed.
